remembered 1970 moment

Klaus J. Gerken

she said no it wasn’t that way
i said yes it was i was there
she said you are wrong in your opinion
i said i couldn’t be why are you grinning
she said boys are like toys
and the serious ones melt like molasses
i said c’mon now it can’t that bad
maybe we both need new glasses

the november cold wind
blasted rain ‘gainst the pane
and the windows just rattled
perhaps it was clear
we weren’t so dear
after all we both claimed the lost battle

she said yes as i tied my loose shoe
i said no i’m not leaving without it
she threw a big book at the wall take a look
i said no i don’t have to i wrote it
she said men are absurd
they think they control the whole masses
i said really now what can be done
and walked out before the smoke turned to ashes

the november cold wind
blasted rain ‘gainst the pane
and the windows just rattled
perhaps it was clear
we weren’t so dear
after all we both claimed the lost battle
