The Writers' League of Washington will be meeting tomorrow.  Each month we pick a word to write something about.  The writing can be any form, story, article, poem, limerick.  Our word for this month is 'rendezvous.'  This is what I wrote.  For those of you who are familiar with the movie "Casablanca."


They come to the hot sands to relax and play
some stay for week, a month, some just for the day
They wander the broadwalk and eat the delites
enjoying the sunning days and the partying nights

She walked in the place knowing it was Mick's
She found the jukebbox and selected B6
The familiar tune made Mick turn with a sign
As the jukebbox played "As Time Goes By"

She sat at the counter and said you know what I eat
He felt the hurt renewing, he remembered her deceit
Of all the pizza joints in the world she walks into mine
Instead of a romantic rendezvous she left him behind

He knew she liked her pie with sausage and pepperoni
and he'd make it for her even though she was a phony
He still remembered Vegas and what he thought was love
The nights they spent together, what was he thinking of

She took all his money and left him all alone
with no transportation and no way to get home
He spit on her pizza and slowly closed the lid
and handed it to her smiling, here's looking at you kid
