Blue Lady Blues

This post is in response to MagpieTales prompt #67 which is the image above.



I’m through with on-line dating

It always ends a mess

I can’t believe I wasted

Ninety dollars on this dress

His profile: Young and handsome

But he turns out old and fat

His clothes are so last century

Dude, please lose the hat

He takes me to a sports bar

To watch football on the tube

Then he brings a friend along

Can you believe this rube?

The loser with that awful lute

Is really bugging me

Strum the freaking strings, you creep

And not my freaking knee

I’ll grit my teeth and muddle through

Nothing rude or brash

But first thing in the morning

The computer’s in the trash!

    Versebender, this is so original and engaging, I can’t stop laughing! I also have to comment that your accomplished use of the verse form makes for a great poem.
    “His clothes are so last century
    Dude, please lose the hat”
    Love it!
