Pasternak Time: “Two-timing takes its toll”

Pasternak Time: “Two-timing takes its toll”

Two-timing takes its toll
As the secret gets out
And everyone is drawn in
Whether they take sides, or not.
Mistress Revolution or Lady Art:
Will he never make up his mind?
Who’s it going to be?
Their beauties so transparent,
Their expectations almost eternal,
Their moves fabulous and fickle.
Someone is going to get hurt,
Someone else tries not to care.
Divides become apparent.
Mademoiselle The Present and Madame The Past:
What’s the choice?
Who will he stay with?
Will they all just stick it out?
Or will someone get the flick?
Commentary circulates:
Only death will come between them.
Everybody is talking,
No two opinions quite the same,
But on this they agree:
It’s an uneasy truce
Where no-one is completely happy,
No side gets everything they want.
Life must go on now this is the situation.
Watch the calculations start!
Miss Chance or Dame Fortune?
The compromises settle uncomfortably
Certain of a flare-up.
Can he serve two mistresses
And not hate the one
While he serves the other?
