High Class

Shall I go?
There more reasons against than for.
There’s a thunderstorm happening
That seems to have set in.

I’ll never get a parking spot near the venue.
I’ve left it too late for that
So I’ll be drenched on entry.
My best suit too.

Then there are the guests.
Women with cheap perfume
And men with berets.
They’re not my type

But it’s a goood opportunity
To promote my latest book.
Is it worth thhe bothher at this late hour?
Me thinks not.

I think I’ll write a poem instead.
