Once again, Angel Sammys and Teddys Pawetaton have provided us with a photo for Poetry Thursday.
I saved all my money to see the show
I was told people like us can’t afford to go
But I have always believed if there is a will, there's a way
And now I was going to see my favorite performer play
I don’t want to tell you what I had to do to get a ticket
There were things I was glad to do that my old uncle said weren’t cricket
But I idolized the singer so
So I could not accept the answer no
When I got an email with the ticket, I felt like Charle Bucket
I uploaded a picture of me and the ticket with the caption, “Suck it”
I bought new clothes in case my hero saw me
And took notice of the girl singing like a banshee
Maybe I would be brought up on stage
And in funny banter, we would engage
Maybe we would sing a duet
And be so good we toured with her quartet
When the gates opened, I rushed inside
I was five seats from the front on the right side
And just before the show began in front of me did sat
A bitch with a three-foot-tall hat
I could not see the performance, and my idol could not see me
I asked the woman to remove her hat, and she said, “que?”
Why didn’t I take Spanish in high school?
Instead of Latin, I’m such a fool.
I heard the show was great.
I missed it trying to download Google translate
I learned even if you achieve your dreams that
It can be ruined by a Spanish lady in a big fat hat
