There’s a trendy cafe where people of fame
Get reservations because of their name
The decor is abstract and so is the food
The acoustics are bad and the waiters are rude
When I got a call from my friends to say
“We’ll take you to dine there,
We’re coming your way,”
I tried to dissuade them, but they didn’t care
They had read all about it in Vanity Fair
The din was distracting and the food not improved
The waiter was distant, his thoughts far removed
Our guesses proved right, (true to our suspicion,)
He was calling his agent about his audition
You may still want to try it, so what the heck!
But don’t be surprised when you see the check!
