Where Were You?

Where Were You?

Where were you last night?

And the night before?

What is this strange scent?

Whose glove is this by the door?


Where were you last weekend?

Why didn’t you answer my call?

Was it you that made the hinge squeak at 5?

You know, from the door in the hall?


What’s this red petal on your collar?

What’s this stain on your coat?

What have you been up to?

What’s this smudge on your throat?


You really are a wandering minstrel

You tiny rescued scoundrel

You really need to mend your ways

Because I’ll follow you out one day.
