The day after you came

The sun may shine in winter, but I will †
Remain quite cool. You came alone. Descend   †
Alone. The bedchamber retains an icy chill. † †
And, in the lounge, the coffee's cold. So fend † †
Without its warmth or succour. You'd do well † †
To guard your fast, take your hat from the stand † †
And depart with no comment. If the smell † †
Of bacon tempts you sorely, I'll command † †
The cook to crisp it, so you'll hate the crunch. † †
Its rancid burn will really make you seek † †
Another hostel, where you'll have a brunch † †
That recommends itself. Shut up! Don't speak! † †
And do not stamp your boots nor slam the gate! † †
You came alone. So, go alone! †And ache! † †
