Behind the bar with silver shaker,
mixing cocktails with practiced flair,
a little entertainment for customers’ sake.
Trim and handsome, beard, blond hair.
Always smiling and well dressed:
today, red trousers, navy vest.
I think he’s officially a sommelier,
but is he straight or is he gay?
Can’t tell the color of his eyes,
but they’re animated, bright.
He clearly does his work with pride.
I wonder what he’s doing tonight.
