I remember those 2 Bastards
setting us up on that blind date,
little did I know!
I thought I would have 1 drink and leave
as I walked to that seedy, back alley tavern
I elbowed open the door
and through the cigarette smoke
I saw you leaning up against the bar
like some debauched angel.
Clicking a sharp red stiletto heel
in rhythm to a ‘Killers’ track
bursting out from the jukebox.
A pre-cum sign is always the best omen
so I walked on over
and kissed you deeply ‘Hello.’
Then ordered 8 straight tequilas.
