Happy Hour

The definition of a hustle play
No point in crying over yesterday
I lost myself inside a drunken kiss
Day one and I'm already over this

I never had a valentine before
What's worth the time and effort anymore?
Don't be a nickel looking for a dime
It's always peanut butter jelly time

I really wanna have a bullet scar
Tuition should include an open bar
Well, changes happen for a reason right?
Don't ask her on a straight tequila night

    I truly enjoyed the rhytm of this piece. It appears your experiment was a success.

    Had a happy time reading this. Liked the line don't be a nickel looking for a dime...did you pen it, or is it an old saying?

    I constructed the poem from Pentametron couplets, so I didn't actually write the lines. Kind of an experiment, really. Google Pentametron.
