Karaoke - Poem by Charles Hancock

It was just one of those nights
Paradise by the Dashboard Lights
Was being sung at the karaoke bar
By a platinum blond, rising star

I didn't have to work the next day
So I decided to go out and play
Who knew what the night would bring
I just wanted to hear folks sing

I was on my third tequila sunrise
Not stopping to think that it to be unwise
To be hammering drinks alone
Then try to sing in slurred monotone

I took to the stage with great joy
What song I was going to destroy
Had to think and do it fast
Of a ballad from long ago past

He Stopped Loving Her Today
Was what I selected to bray
Later, I could tell by the idle hands
That I didn't win over any fans
