CROSSWORDS IN THE PUB

We’re doing crosswords in the pub
Because that’s what lovers do
When they fall out of love
Crosswords in the pub

We don’t speak much anymore
Except to discuss clues
Because that’s what lovers do
When disenchantment ensues

We’re doing crosswords in the pub
But at least we’re still together
Keeping each other company
Uncomfortably

Going down or going across
Moving words about
We’re doing crosswords in the pub
Trying to work things out.
