One’s memory has lapsed,

One doesn’t recall

If one had sex with that girl

Or not at all.


The photo shows one

With an arm around her waist

Upstairs in his house

One denies it took place.


Whoops, one has made a mistake,

How would one know …

If it was upstairs

When upstairs one didn’t go?


One danced with her at Tramps

In a fevered sweat

But one doesn’t perspire

It’s a medical complaint.


Deny, deny, deny

That’s all one can do

When the press start hounding

And that woman does too.


Amnesia strikes

It’s plain to see,

One didn’t have sex,

It wasn’t me.


Having witnessed the denials

The country is bemused

Mother however,

Is not amused.
