Park Theater - Park Rapids, Minnesota

Six Word Story: (revised)

No! he cried, not the batteries.

 

Literary Reference:

A bright array of city lights as far as I can see

The Great White Way shines through the night for lonely guys like me

The cabarets and honky tonks, their flashing signs invite

A broken heart to lose itself in the glow of city lights.

 

Lights that say "Forget her name in a glass of sherry wine"

Lights that offer other girls for empty hearts like mine

They paint a pretty picture of a world that's gay and bright

But it's just a mask for loneliness behind those city lights.

- City Lights, performed by Ray Price
