Lamentations!


Panda eyed, ... she laments,

Hours lost, and ill-spent...

No longer Cinderella, prim & proper,

Bet she told her Dad a Whopper...

All dressed up, high heels so fine,

For a taxi, she waited in line...

Friday, friends and fancy plans,

Drinking shots got out of hand...

Fuzzy facts not quite in reach,

A naked guy ... who called her peach...

Recollection of actions taken,

Blurred & disjointed … now awaken...

A boozed-up night, all turned bitter,

Shared no doubt on Facebook & Twitter...

The fairy tale has been distorted,

Unseemly behavior as well reported...

With still a wobble in her gait,

Shoeless for a cab she waits...

A best friend is lost forever,

Her drinking choice was not so clever…

Confused the hour… dusk or dawn?

Discarded stiletto, on the sand forlorn ...

An outcome she did not perceive...

Equality of the sexes ... now almost achieved...

Sadly, not by male drink reduction ...

But … increased female alcohol consumption!
