A Love of Barmaids


How wonderful they are
Those sweet ladies behind the bar
Providers of that nectar
The sweet, sweet beer
They listen to the drunks
And put up with every quip
I actually admire them
For all the stick they take
Little paid and over worked
They deserve my praise
Although I never left a tip
Perhaps much to my shame
Or limited funds required
To get another drink
And remain entertained
By those lovely barmaids
The bring me beer
And listen to me talk
What more could I ask
A service I applaud
So I thank each one
As beautiful as they are
For serving and listening
To my incoherent ramblings
A love of barmaids
Is more than deserving
And her I am now
Thanking

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
