The monotonous sound

Of his voice droned on

She was tired of this

He always talked a lot

When he had been drinking

And it was mostly nonsense

Years later a part of her

Longed to hear the ramblings

But it was not possible

He drank his last drink

And took his last breath

So she was truly alone
