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.
