“Going Out”


“Going Out”

Cheap date, Friday night,

Daring Dulcinea.

Stood in line, at the club,

and the pizzeria.

Last dance, romance,

speaker ballerina.

Mood swings, fat chance,

meat-market arena.

Cologned spurts, mesh shirts,

dancing in a line.

Pulled close, grinder-man,

hand up her behind.

Homeward bound,hit the ground,

running for your life.

Walk of shame, glad you came,

a normal Friday night.
