The Night at the Party
I was playing 'hide and seek' with the youngsters,
For they needed much to do...
There was Jasmine, Amerish, Harry, Noah
And couple of others too.
Amerish couldn't find Jasmine.
She said, "She was hiding behind that door!"
So I opened the entrance to the ladies loos
And let out a mighty "ROAR!"
As you may have guessed,
Jasmine wasn't there!
But a lady was fixing her makeup
And fluffing out her hair!
I was all apologetic,
Tried to explain myself, but then
She politely stated,
"I need to go again!"
I returned to the main hall
And Jasmine was always there!
Right at the end of the table,
Behind the tallest chair...
The next time I see that lady,
Our conversation may well begin,
"Do you remember the night at the party
When you jumped out your skin?"
