Suddenly Mary


Suddenly Mary fell in the water
Were not I weary I would have caught her
I watched for a moment and scrambled in
After
Words of disownment were drowned out with
Laughter

I awoke from a peaceful sleep and found
My clothes under the table
Aesop used to make me weep but now I'm
Part of Mary's fable

Suddenly Mary fell in the water
I found myself married to somebody's
Daughter
"Loving," she told me
"Is a question of bravery"
But when she started to hold me
It was closer to slavery
I got up for a bite to eat and found my
Clothes inside the icebox
I used to stand on my own two feet but
Now I sit when my new wife talks

Suddenly Mary fell in the water
She floated away with the ring that I
Bought her
She had convinced me that I was a failure
I burned all my clothing and found a new
Tailor
Suddenly Mary (repeat)
Suddenly Mary's fine (repeat)
