The Missed Gig

Muse are playing Dublin
I really want to go
My husband and my kids
They all tell me 'No!

You're really much too old,' they say
'You'll stick out like a sore thumb'
And so I stay at home again
Feeling kind of glum.

The cost would be extortionate
The travel and hotel,
The other end of the country
I tell myself, 'Oh, well.

I'll watch the gig on YouTube
I'll get a better view'
But do you think I find it
In the pages I look through!

I'll go back to my videos
I'll go back to my discs
And I'll pretend that I don't care
And Muse on what I missed.
