I met her one of those talking parties
the drink comes slow & everybody is looking at each other
she was a strong independent woman she told me flat
didn’t need no man had her own place job & car
it was this we’d fall out over but that’s later
we met a few times slept together some
& I thought we were kinda good friends
I had no plans for any future & she?
she was happy doing what she did & seemed happy at it
then the car misunderstanding thing happened
I had friends round at mine putting the world to rights
& she rang: my car has a flat ok I say you got call out?
nope where are you? you got a spare?
other side of the city & yes she did have a spare
ok I say call me if you have any problems
she turned up later all furious & angry
how rotten I was no damned good at all
seems I should have dropped everything
gone to rescue her fixed the flat
wait I say you tell me you’re the selfmade woman
told me straight a man should not take over
even offer to help in anything at all
unless requested by the woman
got your own house job & a car….
apparently I’m a damn fool too
(she said fucking idiot really)
