A Kiss

When I kissed you goodbye this morning, love

My lips started tingling and there was this

Sensation, so I ran to the mirror

And I noticed that both my lips were plump

Plumper, in fact, than they have ever been

So plump, that I ran 'round the house crying

"What is happening! What is happening!"

And that's when Suzette pulled me aside and

Said, "Don't worry, it just means you're getting

DeLovely soon; so if you look like me

For a little while, well, it's not like there's

Anything wrong with that." And she was right.
