MY LAST VISIT TO A SINGLES BAR

"When I were young and single~~ Oh how I did loves to mingle" "LEROY: "from the movie 'FAME'" "I did 'DELIGHTFUL'~~and yes~~some other FOOLISH 'THINGS'" I'll now confess to frequenting "A Singles Bar" We all knew why we were there Was no need to play hard to get The Regulars were lovely But yet...monotony began to raise it's ugly head Like thumbing through a 'PLAYBOY' (Mag) I began to anticipate the next one would look better than the previous Wondered then if there was any credence to the old saying: "Variety is the Spice of Life" I just sat there with one eye peeled to the door... Waiting for 'THE NEXT ONE' Unfullfilled passion then became my undoing... I drank myself into unconsciousness I remember waking to Pitch Black A gravelly hoarse cough coming from the other side of the bed A calloused hand sliding under my bare buttocks My 1st thought...had I stopped at the YMCA...Bar? Time to face the demon! "What In the Hell Are You Doing?" An Old Gal's gravelly voice then answered: "JUS LOOKING FER MI TEEF...SONNY BOY... "JUS LOOKING FER MI TEEF!"
