She came home from a hard day on the road
expecting to find Seb in an aubergine dress.
How she actually found him is not important
but it was not in an aubergine dress.
Suffice to say, she felt thwarted and expressed
her frustration forthright and direct
and said to Seb “don’t let me see you again
unless you are wearing an aubergine dress”.
Not unreasonable, you might think, in fact
some people praise her calm restraint.
When a women gets used to the aubergine dress
it’s a shock to find it prematurely retired.
So Seb numbly went back to his close-caption life
by the sea, in his funeral suit
She took out her tanning lotion and mapbook
and went to look for a new aubergine dress.
