Bob & Barbara

Bob & Barbara
are ninety-two.

They live in a high-rise
air-conditioned shoe.

She has all her marbles
and half of his too.

He spends hours
in the loo.

She feeds him bananas,
cereal, bread.

He hosts arias
in his head.

The cock crows.
The cow says moo.

Barbara & Bob
are ninety-two.

They still share
a queen-sized bed.

She’ll go on living
until he’s dead.
