16 YEAR OLD BUS BOY

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 

I was underage

to be sure

the 80’s was a wild time

I.D.

We don’t need no stinking I.D.

 

so I procured

a weekend gig

bussing tables at a diner

working midnight shift

 

A lot of strange folk

happen by

after that midnight clock

 

I learned more than I should

from those overnight jaunts

Drunks at 2 AM

have peculiar tastes

 

didn’t last long

though the authorities

never knew

 

I made a few (very few) bucks

and moved on

to better things

at a later date

Work Later

As late as possible. Don't listen to me. My first gig was at 17. Ha!
