(From Neil’s latest book – Jigsaw)

The life of a divorced man
can be measured by yesterday’s coffee
no sense wasting
when it’s just a little skunky

No cream to add
last week’s went sour
won’t shop ’til Friday
when I pick up the kids

The single life
and a cup of yesterday’s coffee
spoon stands up
have a cigarette
no sugar to add
I take mine bitter.
