Reality Check
(3/26/2021)


Brother Bollocks
came across
information about
an old girlfriend
on the internet

the man
whom she had
left him for

whom she
had married

became a lawyer

a judge

a respected
professional
and family
man

her family

she had
done well
in life

Brother Bollocks
was pleased
for her

truly

her husband
was all the things
that she had
wanted

all the things
that he
could never
be

at least not
without lying
to himself

he seemed
destined
to live
his own particular
twisted
truth

quite
happily
alone
