Juliet checks her phone one last time
before going to bed
and upon waking up to greet
she checks it again
just in case she missed a midnight text.
Alas, the kids wonder why dad sleeps
on the sofa again rather than upstairs in bed
and Romeo tells them
not to worry, everything is fine
even though he knows they know
it is not so.
