Nathan Tarrh

True Story

get up in a hurry
eat breakfast
have to make the bus at seven

find my dress clothes
black socks nowhere to be found
looking everywhere

panic
can't disappoint the band
searching, searching

check the clock
7:15
missed the bus

wake up in a cold sweat
still have to make the bus
I can't find my black socks
