the roaches were happy

It was a warm July night
Actually it was evening
I hate the heat
Almost as much as the cold
I was walking from the local
Liquor store
Where people are still real
Living lives not yet
Teflon coated
It was before I quit smoking
And drinking
Becoming a full time
Single parent
I had a dozen beers
Under my arm
Heineken
I liked the green bottles
Always wanted to visit Germany
This would probably be the closest
I would get
Two ladies standing outside the pub
Stopped me
Admired my beer
Asked for a cig
I gave them one each
I’m a lonely man
They liked green bottles to
Wanted to visit Amsterdam
Asked if they could join me
I grinned
Walked on by
Crossing the alley
The roaches were smiling
So was I
I opened the security door
To my building
The ladies walked in ahead of me
My apartment
Was spotless
They complimented me
As they left
The roaches were
High fiving each other
I was smiling thinking
They really liked the
Heineken?

the roaches were happy
