New Waitress In Town

Just swiped my card
I can hear footsteps all around
Plates and cups banging 
A tray falls on the ground

behind you
Meals over,
Bring ice cream
You just have to

No ice to scoop
Appetizers are cold
Kitchen is backed up
Sometimes it gets so old

Your new so they'll test you
Try to cheat you out of tips, 
This “co-worker”..not quite legit

One might have pulled a fast one
But a mistake only happens once
Next time you need food run
Your on your own son

    That was a good one, especially forming the shape and keeping the story flowing, Dave
