I wasn’t lying that time
I said I had a headache,
an appointment,
no petrol.

I wanted to see you
and yours.
Talk about how ‘grand’
school was going.
Listen to you idolise
your kids, yourself,
the dog.

So desperately did I
want to do you lots
of favours,
destroy your worries and
fix the fence.

I did want to
see you!
But I had
a headache, 
an appointment,
no petrol.
