Diner Girl

She's a diner girl
A trucker's fantasy
A little bit tough
While being sexy

Sure she likes to flirt
A tool of her trade
She has them dreaming
Thinking they'll get laid

The tips all add up
For dreams of her own
When her shift's over
She goes home alone

You think you know her
She plays the part well
Your glimpse of heaven 
Her personal hell

Her expectations
Are grander than this
She desires more
Than a truckers kiss

Nothing can stop her
Or get in her way
The World needs dreamers
Who dream better days

    I like the spirit of this. If it weren't for dreamers we'd still be in the dark ages... with no cars, no lights, no telephones... but people don't always think of this and are cruelly viewed in their "current state of things"... I mean the Wright brothers were ridiculed for their ideas, right? Enjoyed this one. Quick, sharp, easy to grasp yet makes you think... this seems to be your style.

    Richard; I love this one, since I used to be a waitress in my very young days. i sure used to get a lot of tips. I was not a flirt - i just treated people nice. Thanks for sharing this. Loved it.

    Lovely write! It's horrible what some people have to do just to get by! As long as she just gives away a kiss and not body and soul....All poets are dreamers!
