Dead Kennedy's gig and a senryu

The Dead Kennedys were excellent in concert last night! The venue was crowded but everyone was good natured, as they generally are at these types of gigs. I found myself right at the front 'in the mosh pit' at one point, something I generally avoid as I'm always worried I'll lose my glasses! But its great fun in there and that's where my partner always hangs out. The band played all their crowd pleasing old songs (California Uber Alles, Holiday in Cambodia etc) but we were treated to a 'brand new song' to prevent us living in the past. It was a great night. Have to say though I've not had such bad tinnitis since, well the last time we saw the Dead Kennedy's in concert, same venue a few years ago. This senryu, vaguely based on observation at the gig, suits Mad Kane's Haiku prompt (this week the theme is dating)

alone at the bar -
she watches her new boyfriend
dancing with his pals.

I saw them years ago! Did they sing "Too Drunk to ahem" I'm sure you know the title.

And there is a whole lotta story in that haiku! :D

She called a taxi.
It was the wise thing to do
and charged it to him.

She never suspected
that she was a handy cover
and that he was gay
