C'est La Guerre
Edward Hujsak


When “Hi” replaces “Dearest,”
I sense the jig is up.
Some other chap has claimed your charms.
The “Hi” is cover-up.
Oh, subtlety in texting,
How cleverly you’re used.
You leave me obfuscated
And thoroughly confused.

It is cruel to be obfuscated!

Clever in the extreme---I usually don't laugh out loud this early in the day!
