I like to think that I own this place

a song comes over the booming speakers
it’s a tune that I recommended months ago
to the general manager
even though I come in only once in a while
the patrons still listen to my music
I practically own the place
they should give me stock
or at least a plaque to honour me
maybe just a drink on the house
oh well
sometimes I’ll score a free shot
and, at least, I get to listen to good music
whilst I sit among the boring
and the not-so-boring alike
