I have reached this far
Chauffeur- driven it is a beautiful car
But this flower at the lapel is in the way
Despite an hour hunting for it yesterday

It is a pretty flower, a beauty indeed
Get it right fast for I have a date to keep.
My desire is stunted I am left flustered
The evil is afflicting me hard and I’m all frustrated       

I have been through a trying existence
Fading by the minute the bother is an irritant
Time is fast-moving my chances in a deep abyss
A flower between me and that all-important kiss
