He joined her at bingo, though he HATED the game.
But he knew that SHE loved it, so he went, just the same.
He grudgingly handed his money to her
to purchase whichever cards she might prefer.
She found seats quite quickly; “non-smoking”, he said.
So she went to the non-smoking section ahead.
The cards lay before them, all ready for fun,
and before very long, the night’s game had begun.
The caller sat up in that big caller chair,
so that he could be seen and heard from everywhere.
The game was 1/2 over when, what do you know?
He called out “B-6”, and she yelled out “BINGO!”
So they collected their winnings, and when all was done,
not only had SHE, but HE ALSO had won!
So it wasn’t so terrible, (he HAD to admit)
No tonight wasn’t 1/2 bad, not one little bit!!
