Your three words today are: figure, nod, handsome
Just a mirage
As I walk down along this dry, desert road
I feel my insides about to explode.
I haven’t been eating, its been some three days
The blinding sun has been guiding my ways.
A figure is outlined against the bright sky
I can’t tell if it’s a woman or guy.
I nod as I walk by, I’m hoping to see
If that lonely tall person looks a bit friend-ly.
I see that he’s handsome, pretty darn cute
He’s wearing nice shoes and a dark, navy suit.
I ask him if he knows the way to my car
He said that he thinks that I’ve walked way to far.
I say that I know that, but how can it be?
I’m far from my car, parked out near a tree.
He says that he saw me last night at the pub.
I thought that was strange, I don’t like to club.
I must have been thinking aloud at this point
He asked if I wanted to smoke me a joint.
I said that I did and it tasted real swell
I wonder if food ever tasted this well.
I pondered for seconds, high as a kite
All of a sudden all alone in the night.
Was this all a dream, was it true and for real
It’s just a mirage when it’s been days with no meal.
