She said 'Whatever'

And a sudden irrestible urge
possessed my right shoulder
my right foot first slowly
then with intent
pressed forward and then
I was looking up the street
the pub horse-cart a single carriage
away from her
high hat on head
I strode away.
and that was that

But in those days no one would have said 'whatever' so...
I was looking up the street
there the rare corner pub
from an era past,
away from her
chin high as always
I strode away.
and that was that
