Sometimes a man “don’t wanna” go home,

Just not immediately…

It’s not that he doesn’t love his wife,

But he needs some time to breathe.

Sometimes I’ll stand outside the car

Drinking in the warm night air…

List’ning for animals, traffic noise

And starry skies up there.

I don’t go drinking with the guys

‘Cause none of us booze…

We meet on Sundays most of the time,

For reasons we all chose.

I’m glad to have some time alone

Before heading inside…

The cat and wife will greet me well

After my homeward ride.

  1. Just some time alone.. I get it.
