The Warren
As jobs are lost to angry picket lines,
and daily news describes a world in flux,
we need distraction, crashing cars and trucks,
romantic heroes sipping sparkling wines,
car chases in dark alley's tight confines,
or spies so debonair in formal tux.
As fantasies reveal the stories' crux
we can forget as circumstance declines.

Not every hall suspends reality-
The Warren is the cinematic site
where comfort and plush hospitality
let couples cuddle close in flickered light.
While viewers watch with human frailty,
escape becomes a necessary rite.

wow very nice work laddy. It has a definite voice to it and it is shouting. Keep it up. Favourite line, romantic heroes sipping sparkling wine. I don't know why but it just puts a vivid picture in my head. Well done, lad.

Good write for you told the truth here about life today. And you offer a place of refuge, of escape. I like that for it offers hope as well.

Ahh, I don't watch television much, but I am an absolute movie lover, and understand completely. I would still have enjoyed this greatly even if I didn't agree. Nicely done! :)
