Author's Note: Inspired by the Amanda Marshall tune, If I Didn’t Have You. At the time of writing this, at work, we had a small portable radio, that had to be stuck on the same commercial station, day in and day out. As is common, the station had only a small play list of songs that they would play ad nauseum. The only break was in the afternoon when the Dr. Laura talk show would come on, offering advice mainly to misguided women. She herself was eventually taken off the air when it was discovered that she had done a nude photo shoot at some point in the distant past. In revising the poem, I dug up the song’s video on YouTube, and have to admit it sounded pretty good. Maybe because I was listening to it on a decent sound system for a change, and not five times in a single day. So, my apologies to Ms. Marshall...and Dr. Laura...we all make mistakes.
