    In a booth
    In the back
    In the corner
    In the dark
    Sitting side by side
    Close as close can be
    Waiting for our food to come
    Hands and fingers itch to roam free

    Fancy restaurants
    Take their time
    Preparing food so sublime
    Filet Mignon
    Apple-baked Shark
    Besides our convo
    What might we do
    In this booth
    In the back
    In the corner
    In the dark

    All is seen from our view
    I can look across the restaurant
    While being so close to you
    The sneaky kid in all of us
    Wants to put our hands under the table
    We certainly have the time
    And we know we are able

    In the booth
    In the back
    In the corner
    In the dark
    We could do some things
    No one would be the wiser
    But we'd make too much noise
    So we better just order an appitizer

    I'm very sorry if you didn't mean to be funny. I literally laughed out loud for this one. I had a really rough long day and your poem just struck me like a ton of bricks as ironic. You absolutely lightened my load with this one. Thank you very much.

    Heartbeat,
    Well, I see you were wise enough not to put me in the same class as the real poets on this site, thank you for that, chuckle. I re-read your poem, and found that the reason I found it so amusing was it's ironic address of situations I have found myself in, and in my dreams (smiling). Thank you again for expressing feelings that I never could. Even dwarves get horny in romantic settings, lol.
