My Date - Two Hours Late

I tuned in WEAA
Static blocked out
The true sounds
Of Gladys Knight and the Pips
Singing "On and On"...
My date two hours late.
My acne goes into a frenzy and
I've had too much wine
For the prescribed medication.
Static on WEAA FM
And
My pimpled face screaming...
My date two hours late.
So
I trade my wine for sleep
But it won't come...
So
I stay tuned to WEAA FM,
Static fading as I adjust the knob
But not the throb in my heart and
My date is two hours late!
