i’ve been meaning to ask you
a million times on different nights
if you’d date me next friday night
when pay comes in and we can dine
in lavish restaurant serving
signature cherry pies.
you’d be meaning to tell me
a million times everytime that
you wouldn’t date an aristocrat
but pay comes in and you’d like
something sophisticatedly simple
like cherry pies.
so we dated
till we wed,
and we get to eat
our cherry pies.
