The Common Come​-​On

from by J. Marinelli



The driest daytime drama lives
In silly personality seams
Introducing each date
The singles are going straight (to hell)

Unhealthy innuendo throughout
The common come-on is strange
Where the whimsical sect
Entitles Lexington miles

I can see for miles and miles

Below the drop
You’ll wind up in
Another town
And burn the heart of everyone
Who dares to stick around

Australopatheticus breaks weak
Scorches torch-song in touches
Fluttery old hearts hold fast
To the weakling’s lost weekend
