Guilty pleasures 

i saw a chap the other day stopping to pick up a lady that wasnt his wife
he was fidgetin bad
was a quick stop & go move
or was supposed to be
but the lady all done up was tekkin long fuh jump in de car
and she paused momentarily to stare at me
i stumbled upon them in broad day light coming out the shop
look like it was planned to look like a taxi pick up
he had that ah trustin yuh to carry dis secret to yuh grave fren look pon he face
i watch he
he watch me
i watch she
she watch me
and i kept on walking like nothing
and they speed off down de road to have they fun
