Most Women Are Dull and Stupid

Chapter Text

I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't check in
With the men, especially with such an unusual
Situation as a tenant done a runner. Thomas,
Hard at work swinging his pick and taking out
Rock, had to wipe sweat out his eyes just
To recognize me. The heat takes its toll upon
Everyone, so I did not feel amiss offering him
A short break by way of conversation. He did
Seem more worried about the tenancy than
About his father, but more than one man
Has taken the family's savings and gone away
To get blind drunk for a week before running
Home. Thomas is a good man for working
So hard to make sure he was one to return to.
