Poem: Anticipation


I think getting ready to go is better than outing,
Because I love finding the set of clothes I want to wear.
I do enjoy having a long relaxing bubble bath,
Like taking my time to apply my usual make-up.

Getting ready drink final coffee before leaving home,
Now, tonight at the theatre try and find my pre-booked seat.
I am surprised to see vast area of empty places,
But it soon becomes apparent why, when this show begins.

People look forward to musical shows, sound system dire!
No encores wanted from this much out dated aged band.
My anticipation for entertainment had been great,
So home I took my unfulfilled self for cocoa and sleep.
