Ye Olde Picture - Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory

‘Ye olde picture’

Taken in Victorian times
A modern picture of John Betjeman
Glass in one hand
Cigarette in the other
Faded depictions of poets and scholars
Tree lined hollows

Beer and Cider
That don’t need hard sales
Life as normal in Highgate
In the ‘Prince of Wales’
Ye olde style atmosphere
The modern pint of beer
Cheers to the famous clientele
The stories they could tell

Oh to be a wise old seer
Alas, I’m only here for the beer
This is the Prince of Wales
I’m only interested in their ales
Ye olde picture
No! A new pitcher
