In November, the heady rush,
Of clattering tongues and chiming bells,
The preppy ones and the ne'er do wells.
Today's the day it all will change,
Today's the day you will arrange,
Your date to the big school dance;
There they are! There's your chance!
You see them walking, smooth and svelte,
You feel your palms begin to sweat.
You see them turn and give a smile,
Your heart stops for what feels a mile.
Your mouth chatters on, by brain uninterrupted;
Feeling logic might leave the moment corrupted.
Your face goes redder than an overripe beet;
Your eyes are irresistibly drawn to your feet.
