Inspired by you know who, and who …
Had I small change enough and time,
I would not risk a parking fine
to visit you, my dear old girl,
to bring you out, show off my pearl.
Starbucks a fine and public place,
yet many young do there embrace,
for sure — and why not the more mature?
So over coffee and biscotti,
lean close, kiss me, sweet and eighty.
Love’s a stuff that does endure.
