Vampire School

It’s so hard when your love
goes to work at midnight

You shed a tear
maybe drink another beer
and try not
to apply
to vampire school

or go to work
as a gas station clerk
just so you can watch the sunrise
come up over
her thigh

---

It’s so hard when your love
goes to work at midnight

---

Gotta make a buck
and keep up on your luck
and maybe I can come home for lunch
and we can duck
under the covers


and laugh like children
or play a mean game of footsie
and maybe we can get up on time
to watch
the sunset

It’s so hard when your love
goes to work
at midnight

You shed a beer
maybe drink another tear
and try not
to apply
to vampire school
