Go Orringer, 8th - Oakland, CA
Dear Dannie, it’s spring, wow,
Uncanny, about now…
Mama says I can go to the prom, can I please have a date?
I’m not the epitome of calm, vow not to be irate!
Spring come slowly, don’t back down,
I am wholly, ready for crown…
And though I can’t see you, I know your world
And how much you grew… becomes unfurled.
Winter is about to leave, it has hurt feelings,
Why can’t anyone believe? And shady dealings,
I know that I deserve better, so I want you,
I’ll keep writing this letter, hoping for new…
Give me the crown, and a prom queen dress,
I need a gown, did not mean to press.
I know you’re busy, I just want to dance.
I’m good, is she? Please give me a chance…
As Spring creeps in, as the world is anew,
Look at within, important as to who
You let in, be it me, be it not,
It’s no win, if I see, you in rot.
Dannie goodbye, hope you have decision,
Though I seem shy, you-me is my vision.
I’ll see you soon, I’m going to watch some tellie,
I crave no boon. Dearly, goodbye, from your Kellie.
