I saw a pink blouse
In a second-hand store
With a big cartoon mouse,
Like the one that you wore
When we stumbled into Vegas, so happy and high,
Bound to get married on the Fourth of July.

So I stared at that rodent
Who looked back with a grin;
And after a moment,
I let the rat win.
Hell, there was no contest, and there never has been:
I’ll always love you, through thick and through thin.

Karen found you on Facebook
With another new name.
She says that you still look
Exactly the same.
She told me I shouldn’t, but I’m writing anyhow.
I’ll understand if you just click “Not Now.”

Karen quit teasin’
Like she used to do:
She thinks she’s the reason
For all we went through.
And John got a job with the local PD;
They figure it’s best not to hang much with me.

Chester still barks
When the mail truck rolls by.
He limps a little more now,
And he’s blind in one eye.
Sometimes, when he brings me that old leather shoe,
I’d swear that he still misses you.

Karen found you on Facebook
With another new name.

Exactly the same.
