    A History Museum Reunion

    I was in startled bedazzlement at my tongue tied embarrassment when she approached me from down the hall.

    Fore the girl I once dated who was totally ill fated is now stunning beyond compare.

    With Obvious distraction due to her change in attraction I stutter, I stammer, I swear.
    It’s so good to see you I say with greeted applour, my how you have changed since the class of 84.

    She replies in turn that a long time has past and she is pleased to see me and then she asks,
    Do you work here or is this a visit because I love this place I find it exquisite.

    As a joking remark I state this is my humble abode as I love the inner working of all things old,
    I escort her around relaying stories of days gone by arousing memoires that bring a tear to my eye.

    Once the tour is complete I know I must move fast as this woman has grown and is now a woman of class.

    With hand ringing awkwardness and lost in my foolishness I ask her if she will accompany me dinner,
    she smiles so wide that my heart fills with pride before she utters the words that makes that feeling subside.

    I am afraid I must decline your honourable request for it maybe best that we are not seen together at all.
    When we were young you were handsome and fun but you left me for another girl’s heart.
    Now you are old, you’re all wrinkled and cold and quite frankly you smell like a fart.

    As I watched her walk on with her frame slender but strong it occurred to me that maybe I wrong,
    that in fact she was witch or further more just a bitch and I hope she stays out of my sight.
