The Hub Of Humanity
It is a place where plans are hatched,
Jokes are told and couples are matched.
It is a place to share your news,
Exchange a smile and discuss your views.
It is a place to share your ideas,
Give advice – have a coffee or beer.
It is a place to wine and dine,
Or sit outside if the weather is fine.
It is a place which draws folk together,
And gives them shelter whatever the weather.
It is a place to savour new tastes,
Meet with friends or greet a new face.
It is a place for conversations,
Bon voyages and celebrations.
It is the perfect place for a date,
And a great place to meet your mate.
It is a place to sit and think -
To ponder life and enjoy a drink.
It is a place with real humanity –
Life and laughter, with a dash of insanity.
A crucial linchpin - a real social hub.
A community hotspot, known as a pub.
So take your eyes off your iPhone screen,
And come down and join the social scene.
