Drugs Made Pauline Vague

Stevie Smith

          Drugs made Pauline vague.
          She sat one day at the breakfast table
          Fingering in a baffled way
          The fronds of the maidenhair plant.

Was it the salt you were looking for dear?
said Dulcie, exchanging a glance with the Brigadier.

          Chuff chuff Pauline what's the matter?
          Said the Brigadier to his wife
          Who did not even notice
          What a handsome couple they made.
