I never said they could,
but who am I anyway?
No longer a reader of Archie Comics;
I'm not a pal of Jughead’s,
nor a foe of Reggie’s.
I’ve had my Betty and Veronica moments,
lived through decades with each,
one at a time.
Friendly divorces too.
Thank God no kids! How could I explain to them
being in high school for 47 years?
I guess it was about time to say it:
(I thought you were dead anyway.)
