Creative Challenge #227 - Behind Closed Doors

Wangen an der Aare

Behind closed doors
There is music, singing, laughing
A birthday party, a wedding
The doors are closed
No unwelcome visitors

Behind closed doors
The president is concentrating
What shall I do to make everyone vote for me?
Tell them they will be getting free medical treatment
But do not tell them their taxes will be raised

Behind closed doors,
Mary is crying
Joe has found another and is leaving
She does not want him to go
She feels unwanted and unloved

Behind closed doors
The party is over
The food tasted funny
and everyone was taken to hospital with food poisoning

Behind closed doors
The president changed his mind
No free medical treatment
But be honest and tell them that the taxes will be increased
After the elections of course

Behind closed doors
Mary and Joe were sitting together
Drinking their last glass of wine before Joe left
Joe left but not to where he thought
Mary had put poison in his glass
And Joe was in another world

The things that happen behind closed doors
