Honey, I’m home
Now the lights can go on.
Have the children been fed
Before you told them to get to bed
How was your day?
It was busy, you say
Well, things will come right
There’s no need to fight
You’re home now, safe and sound.
Don’t give another thought to those that hound
You at work, come take off your shoes and chill
I will make some coffee and you will
Hopefully, ask me how my day was too
I’m feeling decidedly blue
The new person at work isn’t nice
And tends to spread lies
About all of us as we try getting the job done
What is that you said, hun?
Oh, you’re hungry and need to eat
Did you rustle up something?
In the fridge, you say to cook.
I found plenty, perhaps you should take a good look
It’s alright, I will get going on that
Could you, in the meantime, tidy up the flat?
So, I can catch the latest episode
While you throw in a load
Of washing because there’s nothing to wear
And no spare
Towels to use
What is your excuse?
To not getting anything done and waiting for me
As if you cannot see
With your eyes, how much the place needs a sweep
I’m so tired after work and shopping that I could weep
Weep, because I may as well be alone
When nothing is done by the time I say, “Honey, I’m home.”
