LAMB VINDALOO OR HOW NOT TO GET LAID AT A REGGAE SHOW

Folder: 
SILLY PHILLY

 

Indian cuisine

tastes great

but it isn’t

always the best thing

to eat before

a night out on the town

this reality

became all too clear

on a recent evening out

I was going to see Burning Spear

with a few of my friends

and we figured Indian cuisine

would go well with reggae

and, of course,

we surmised

when the curry started

coming through our skin

we would have plenty of room

to dance to the music

Unfortunately,

there was one little flaw

in our brilliant scheme:

none of us was already with a girl

and, of course,

once the curry started

coming through the flesh

our odds of attracting girls

were considerably diminished

This was all good and well

with the married guys

but it sure as Hell didn’t

sit too well with me

and I’ll certainly learn

from my mistake

and not do it again
