Drugs Made Pauline Vague

By Stevie Smith

Drugs made Pauline vague.
She sat one day at the breakfast table
Fingering in a baffled way
The fronds of the maidenhair plant.

Was it the salt you were looking for dear?
said Dulcie, exchanging a glance with the Brigadier.

Chuff chuff Pauline what’s the matter?
Said the Brigadier to his wife
Who did not even notice
What a handsome couple they made.
