Down The Pub - Poem by Jean Bernard Parr

You can have
a proper family
down the pub
they are a laugh
these mates of mine
an old joke or two,
a light ale for me
then its shuffle
back and forth
for a pee
like those great
buffalo migrations
you see on the tele
the ash trays
get emptied
at closing time
you asked for
lager and lime
won the quiz
and got a pink teddy
