Angry Good-Bye

I was sitting at home and all seemed to be fine
Then my girlfriend got angry and started to whine

She said we don’t have any money and you don’t have a clue
And I’m tired of you sitting around like you do

I tried to tell her I had something important to say
She said she’s tired of listening, just get out of my way

She said she is leaving and moving back with her mother
That I shouldn’t bother to call her because she’ll find another

There is nothing left here that I can call mine
You can have all this debt, every last dime

It’s been so very quiet since she went away
I’m glad I didn’t tell her I won the lottery today

About this poem

I heard a story about a girlfriend trying to get money from an ex-boyfriend after he won the lottery. This poem was created from that story.
