a short poem about two souls and the tragic lives they lead
Dave and Mel

Dave and Mel
As sad as it is
Became the father and mother
Of two little kids

But Dave was a man
Too weak and too high
Too early he exits
A silent goodbye

Mel, for her part
A generous heart
Repeatedly fell for the bad
Not a good start

Mel kept falling for guys
Guys that broke bones and broke hearts
Broken too many times
Mel fell apart

Dave and Mel
Together again for want
Nothing else to do
Tease, then taunt

The kids left to wander
Alone, not afraid
Too close to the fire
And couldn’t be saved

Dave and Mel
Left to pick up the wares
Try for pity and donations
But nobody cares

A waste of a woman
An incomplete man
Dave and Mel on the edge
Push them, we can
