I was feeling good had a glass in my hand
& from where I was sat could see more to be had
which is a good thing at 2 am
when she sat down next to me holding a glass of something red
so how’d you know Bob?
the guy whose party this is
oh that Bob from the bar the pub y’know around
& what do you do?
I make a living & you?
she liked this began talking
she did something with telling people what to do
while i eyed the booze on the table bar
you want a refill? thinking not to be a hog
got her a glass of red & more thinking juice for me
what’s your ambition? she asked next
to sit here drink some more enjoy the party
no no no I mean in life what’s next for you?
oh you know earn some money get on some
& that started her engines again for another while
something about promotion in telling people what to do
marriage babies nice house good car & on
would you like a refill? feeling generous with the house booze
oh no I think I’ve had enough haven’t you?
I’m ok might sit here a while longer enjoy the place
she got up smiled all sweet it’s been nice talking to you
as I got up got a refill thinking of a stray bullet dodged
yes I guess it was nice talking to me
