Ironies Of Life At Starbuck's

Ironies of Life
Sitting in a Starbuck’s with the AC howling from an open door
Enjoying a caffeine fix and an irony of life
Surrounded by computers pounded keys
Hanging Ten on the internet waves
A young woman of Chinese descent adorned in a new straw hat
Black ribbon, black shirt on a summer day
Topping off pale blue jeans tattered and torn
Onto Oreo shoes almost new
Only in Newport Beach can you tatters and new hats mix
And look like you’re to do a Malania strolling slowly down a ramp
