Scenes from a Doper Restaurant

No disrespect intended to the Powers That Be, who are dealing with the virus and the problems that continue to plague this board, but this popped into my head, and I thought I'd share. Hell, it's mundane and pointless:

A five-oh-two, a five-oh-four,
Perhaps we'll get "Server Error" once more,
We're standing by our screens,
Watching spinning balls,
Because we can't go to now-closed malls.

A five-oh-four, a five-oh-two,
My post has been lost in the queue,
I'll meet you any time you want,
In our own Doper Restaurant.

Things are okay with me these days,
Still working hard, from my home office,
I got no wife, but I've got a life,
And the cats are fine.
We haven't touched since long ago,
Your handshake, I did not know,
Your handshake could feel so good after,
So much time.

Do you remember those days hanging out
At the local bar?
Watching sports, bullshitting about
How far teams are?
Here's some football,
Let's cheer for New Orleans,
Cold beer, hot lights,
I'm now missing sports bar nights.

I'm not sure what to do about the "Brenda and Eddie" part of the song, so if anybody wants to contribute, it would be appreciated.
