Date Until The World Ends

The world was to end,
so why not arrange a date?
With Beth at a crowded dive bar,
words refuse to sabotage
our mutual attraction.
But her arrogance made my skin
crawl with contempt.
I glanced at my watch,
thinking up an exit strategy.
If the world froze over
and she somehow survived,
I’d say I regret that you made it,
and the good ones always
die young. I guess that’s why
you’re still alive.
That’s why I’m still here.
