If I see her again, 
I shall meet my doom 
In the smoke-filled air 
Of the chair-ringed room, 
When the hour is late 
And the seats are bare, 
In the form of an upturned 
Well-aimed chair. 
For where there’s a tune, there are filks to spare, 
And one of the filks 
Is mine.

I never did think of a middle verse, but Leslie Fish wrote one herself for Tapeworm 1.

We will see her again 
When the mikes shall cry, 
When the lights fall down 
As the notes run high. 
She will strike a chord 
On her old guitar 
With its twelve strings bare 
To the heaven’s stars. 
She will sing all night ’til they close the bars, 
And no one in sight 
Will mind.
