Ten for 10
© 2008
Dan Johnson

10 days ago, you left me.
9 days ago, you returned
8 days ago, you slept with Maurice.
7 days ago, you cried,
6 days ago, you lied.
5 days ago, you were drunk, again.
4 days ago, you were hung over, again.
3 days ago, you were remorseful.
2 days ago, you flirted with Igor.
1 day ago, I left.

Wonderfully terse and controlled writing Dan!

Dan - no wasted words. Like how the first line and the last line contrast. Sad and witty at the same time.

Igor? You wouldn't by chance be a Terry Pratchett fan would you? - David

Hah! Igor, eh? Don't blame you for leaving. Have you noticed that oozing carbuncle in the middle of Igor's forehead.
