Married To The Gasman

Fragile
And demure

She is married
To the Gasman
She trusts him
And his beliefs
Implicitly
He works
To earn them money

But the Gasman kills a thousand more each day.

 

Awkward
And polite
She is married
To the Gasman
She avoids
The questions
About his line of work
“He works with gas”

Says she
And pretends he is
Repairman-saviour-wholesome

But the Gasman kills a thousand more each day.

Tired
And ill educated
Gasman does what he is told
And knows what he is doing
For the money, it is good
And they call him
Every morning
Between nine and twelve
Except on Sundays
When the gas is not yet needed.

He does not like

The Gasman in the mirror.

Failed musician. Trying to write for TV. Never sure quite where I'm headed. Serial un-funnyman. I used to do a lot of writing. Sometimes I still do. So I decided to put it on the internet. I'm on Facebook and Twitter. Pretty active on the former, not so much on the latter. Holler at me.
