A CLARO IS A GOOD CIGAR
A Shakespearean Tailgater Bluesanelle for Jack Foley
I don't know how I'll wait until tomorrow --
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow!
While you are gone I guess I'll smoke a claro.
A good cigar is sort of like a kiss --
Think about it: really like a kiss
Good night. Good night, my dear! Parting is sweet sorrow,
But you'll get over it, and so will I,
The time will pass before you bat an eye,
And while you're gone I think I'll smoke a claro.
When you return I will have sucked a mint
To cleanse my breath. You'll never smell a hint
Of smoke when you return to me tomorrow.
I know you'll miss me; I'll miss you as well --
I'll miss you deeply, deeper than a well,
But while you're gone I think I'll smoke a claro.
Love is smoke, but a claro's a good cigar,
A claro is a really good cigar!
I'm sure that I can last until tomorrow,
But to be sure I guess I'll smoke a claro.
