a mistress

it seems he has a mistress
he never thought he would
he meant to live in honor and
be loyal and do good

it seems he has a mistress
and each new thing is tried
to show not that he's aging
but that he hasn't died

it seems he's like the others, they say
decent men are rare
the question though that some might ask
is why the hell

she's there
