Do you prefer Lola or Lo?
She said, “hell I don’t know,
Lately it’s hard, I find, to answer to either"
Mind I’m still sober, for shame.
Help me forget my name.
Four turbo shandies
And a shot to start over again.

So full disclosure, I over strode her.
I threw it up, she threw me over her shoulder
Like some kind of cave man
Said “Jesus saves man
Let's interwine and fry our minds.
Get misbehaving.”

I said “Lo”, of nothing, apropos,
“I think I’m falling like a dark arpeggio.”
And she froze as a tear caught the light from the Windmill in Soho.

“You don’t get to choose just don’t let it use you.”
She said
“I let it diffuse and, you’ve read the reviews,
‘Lola loves to lose’”

Chasing last orders
So much for the last tube home
“This place open till three does beer, Donner and chips, £2:50”
“No need to ask me twice, it’s your throw of the dice”
As head lamps and stomach cramps
and some creep’s PVC fantasy rolled by.
Then she lied to my face, she said “actually it’s getting late.”
To which I replied “I’ve not been up this early in centuries”

“They don’t get to choose
Don’t let them defuse you”
I said
“Let’s make it our muse and screw the reviews.
I’m with Lola and Lola loves to lose”
