The Other Woman- a response

"Drinking Only Whiskey"

I didn't take him from you
he came to me
such sweet seduction
came to me

I caved.
I craved.

His words, so sweetly soft with mine
I refuse regret
I've done no more wrong than he
less, perhaps,
'cause I was never a gambler
strictly whiskey
no cards allowed

I called off the cards
spilled beer strewn about the table
to be cleaned and forgotton;
whiskey faintly rotting:
the stench we couldn't cover

So now I sit
and drink alone
cheap dye stains the table

a soggy blackjack
in a puddle of wine

drinking only whiskey.

Come Josephine in my flying machine
Going up she goes up she goes
Balance yourself like a bird on a beam
In the air she goes there she goes
Up, up, a little bit higher
Oh, my, the moon is on fire
Good-by
