Two friends meet for a drink

Scandalous Stars

by lynglyng

We met for drinks, my friend and I.

We had two cola shakes and we split a fry. 

We talked and laughed as old friends do.

Then, she said something quite out of the blue

“What is wrong with you?” I asked.

“Your not yourself, it’s like your wearing a mask.”

Then , my head began to spin and whirl

I, too , was not the same  calm girl.

Others, in the ice-cream shop began to stare

We had become wild, quite the pair

My friend and I had climbed on top of the bar

We danced like some famous movie star

The owner cried , “you two better stop!”

“Stop or I’ll summon that cop!”

A tv crew came to film our crazy dance

That’s when a producer offered us the chance

We became reality stars in show biz

All because of what was in that cola-fiz.
