Juliet and Romeo

Juliet checks her phone one last time

before going to bed

and upon waking up to greet 

the morning

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.
