The challenge:  write 100 words inspired by ‘Her First Mistake’ by Lyle Lovett


And so their story goes
At spinning yarn, he was one of the pros

He was so smooth, with his northern charm
He broke down her walls, without raisin’ her alarm

And her next mistake, left her broken-hearted
She was in too deep, before they even departed

The road was short, and the trip was fast
Just one night together, their love was never meant to last

And when she asked him, why did you pick me
He replied, because your eyes are the prettiest shade of jaded I ever did see

And that was his last mistake
