But I Should Cook

Martini dry with two onions

Yes cocktail onions not olives do you mind

First course as I got home from work

After I peeled my clothes from a sweaty hike

A hot day

But it’s perfect cool

It takes over infiltrating my body

Mmmmmmhhmm yes

I’m weak

So limp I relax

But I should cook

I take another drink

I’ll fall down drunk and be hungry

On the comfy chair sink stretch out

Give in I don’t care



I rise before I am overwhelmed

Start peeling put the glass down but look

One single ice cube has broken into three

Good gin I must say

Look again

it’s two cocktail onions and what remains of the cube

Oh my

Cooking now

Some done

Picking on a few fresh hot

Bring the head down a bit

Leave the glass over there a few moments


A close call I must say

And now I will wind down

Wrap up the verse

I’ve got to get back

Check what’s on the stove

Before it’s too late

Bring back the glass

So not to waste
