bar hopping outside toontown

so here we are again friday at five
sitting amongst the best and worst
telling new tales and rehashing tall ones

this old boy from toontown drops by
and takes off in a whirlwind
buying a round for the gang before
hailing benny the cab

you know he sure looks familiar
someone says
almost everyone else agreeing
swearing they’ve seen his mug before
either on cartoon network or silver screen

jessica the beautiful barkeep
pretends not to be listening
but perks up and smiles wryly
shaking her head when asked
if she had any idea
who that long-eared bloke might be

may two thousand eighteen
