Don't Stay, Honey, Go

We came upon a shady thicket
It was tea time and Tuesday's jam was in your hands

Time flew like an arrow
The veggies flew like an eggplant

We lay beside the autumn leaves
We ate a lotus and skinned a cactus

A raindrop grounded a swallowtail
You made me feel so loved

Even so, I'll never eat my hat when I speak as follows:

"Don't stay, honey, go
Although I'll miss you
The bells cough: 'it's over'"

The morning cloaked the escapade
My muse was mugged by an unbending will

"Let's buy a home, let's settle down"
Bob's your uncle

It's been a long time but I've finally grown
Into the man I always was

The dish ran away with the spoon
You made me feel so loved

Even so, I'll never eat my hat when I speak as follows:

“Don't stay, honey, go
Although I'll miss you
The bells cough: ‘it's over’”

For what am I to you?
A walk home in the dew?
An apple and a hug by the orchard?

Oh heaven-murdered one
Please indulge me some
Meet me at the dock in the evening
