The Wrong Way Home (a ghazal)

The Wrong Way Home

happy hours and peeler bars
he’s taking the wrong way home

a friendly toke, a line of coke
he’s taking the wrong way home

the night is young, pass that bong
he’s taking the wrong way home

a McFlurry, an Indian curry
he’s taking the wrong way home

a pounding head, a stranger’s bed
he’s taking the wrong way home

early dawn, suitcase on the lawn
he’s found his way home.

…..over at dVerse, the verse form of the month is a ghazal, this is my attempt! For a full description of the form, check out their very informative post .

      Thanks Rosemary…..yes I was unsure whether the subject matter fitted the form, but I like the idea of a refrain, so I went ahead any way!

    Now THIS! I can relate to because I have taken the wrong way home on several occasions, but of course now that I have finally found my way home I don’t have to do all that swerving around. That, my friend, was a Ghazal I can get behind. Thanks for sharing!
