Keeping the poise befitting a lady
she tried hard to hide her mood
but so far, it wasn’t working.
Nothing could convince her
through all his smoke and mirrors
His willingness to work so many
The complete change in his character
so cavalier now
He was not at all the man
nothing would convince her
that he wasn’t having an illicit affair
perhaps more than one, maybe two
After all, his patients seemed to
fall for his magnetic charm
just as she had once too.
There was something very different
about him lately
She couldn’t quite put her finger
on what it was, but when she did
woe betide him!
She’d be sure to divorce herself
from this Dr Jekyll and
whatever he was trying to hide.

As this artist also painted Robert Louis Stevenson (thought to be while he was in the process of writing the Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde story, Although I know it isn’t, I thought it might be a nice twist to have this painting by John Singer Sargent called ‘A dinner table at night’ be about the Dr Jekyll character and his wife.
