I Need To Knock You Say

I Need To Knock You Say

There was no need to knock on the front door, it was my house too.
Your angry outcry could only signify the guilt upon your heavy shoulders.
My questions were not to arouse any more suspicion for the time being.
The answers were there when I smelled the after shave that I never wore.

The trail of the aroma that led me to the back door was only the beginning.
What a surprise that the door was opened in a neighborhood like ours.
Crime has been a problem, yet nothing was taken from our beautiful home.
And we have a tall fence in our backyard and our large dog was all tied up.

Our bed was warm, the sheets were stained, and you had night clothes on,
I always come home after six but on this day I was not feeling well at noon.
A set of plates were on the dinning table and I always took lunch to work,
The pretty evening dress was on the floor and the wedding rings were fingerless.

There was no need to knock on the front door, it was my house too.
You shouted at me that you need your privacy and the angry words were evil.
Don’t know why you shifted the blame on me as I read the words on the bottle,
The contents were poisonous and then I remembered the lunch tasting funny.

When I picked up the ringing telephone you got mad and told me it was for you,
I heard the insurance agent wanting to know why the sudden large up grades.
It hadn’t been but a year ago that we both had gone to make a few changes,
So he was inquiring because my voice on the phone had sounded a little strange.

Oh, I should have told you that after I took the first bite I went to see the doctor,
And he said that it was probably something I ate and he quickly took care of me.
Now let’s go over all the reasons you are so angry with me this afternoon,
But hurry, I need to make sure the police caught that naked man outside.
