The Queen of Hotel Street


Aloha Lou, what will you do

on Hotel Street today,


but change your clothes

and drag yourself

on stage for a great display.


All the men seated,

and formally feted,

wearing their blue, brown and gray.


While you, Lou, will sell

your soul and yourself,

as your youth slips silent away.


One day will come,

when all of the fun

of the young

will not be as gay.


But until that time, then,

turn those heads of the men,

while daylight still shines for a day.


And what will you do, Lou,

to buy time away?


For beauty won’t last,

it fades pretty fast,

especially, if that’s all you do.
