This work has reached the exceptional level
Totally fictional....honest!
"Strange" by Beejay
You haven't texted, you haven't phoned,
Sorry to nag you, sorry to moan,
But you said you'd definitely keep in touch
That you'd enjoyed our date so very much,
I was a little worried meeting you online,
Some weirdos, catfish, but you were fine,
You suggested meeting again, another drink,
Well, I'm sure that's what you said...I think;
I know I started to slur a little,
That sometimes happens when I have a tipple.

But thank you so much for walking me home,
I was far too drunk to walk alone,
This morning I went to check my bag,
To find my phone, my head felt bad,
I found lipstick, tissues, keys, powder,
And little by little, I felt more sober,
Diary, chewing gum, but no purse,
My head was pounding, l again felt worse,
No purse in my bag, where were my cards?
Remembering last night was really hard.

I know I went to the machine for cash,
You were there and I had to ask
You to help me put in my pin,
I shouldn't have had that double gin!
Then you put my card back into my bag,
And we paused for a sec and you had a fag,
You said it was getting really late,
But you'd enjoyed our first date,
Strange though, where my cards and purse went to,
Or that I haven't heard a word from you...
