Lady of the Evening

by Jack Peachum

She’s in her beauty tonight– and how lovely–
luminous, riding high, dressed in her best yellow gown,
playing the part of doting girlfriend–
peeking down shyly from behind a veil of cloud!
But, oh, the bitch– she’s betrayed us again
– last night she was with the sun!
When we weren’t looking she crept into his room–
this morning just after dawn– I caught her leaving his side!
