This Wasn't It
"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it." - Groucho Marx
At last I got up and said "I have to go!"
"I have an appointment, or maybe a date,
Or was it a manicure? Whatever! I'm late!"
I ran out the door, but the valet was gone.
It appeared that my car would be pinned in 'til dawn.
I got on my cell to call for a ride,
Debating if I should go wait back inside.
But the thought of returning was too much to bear.
I knew that I just had to get out of there!
I've had many evenings with friends, having fun,
But sadly, I'd have to say, this wasn't one.
