A Chapter by Dave Brown



Backstabbing for beginners

Took me aside

Asked if I wanted, for sumfun

To steal another guy’s bride


For a small charge  

They’d circulate lotsa lies

Saying, so far, their efforts

Had created abuncha goodbyes


They’d do the main work

But I’d have to assist

And see that ruining romances

Had a real nice, nasty twist


As I was putting my JH

On the black dotted line

The Journeyman Backstabber

Had then dropped a dime


Seems my sweetheart had wandered

Much more than just once

And if I didn’t dump her

I was some kina dunce


No dummy me, she was gone

I am not some kind of weak posie

Although, last time I saw her

She and that backstabber

Were both wrapped up real cosy

It's a good write and had me feeling so bad for the speaker by the end. I feel like I could hear a little tune playing in the background!
