Heavy breathing, cheesy winker
Classy chat concludes life’s a stinker
Paisley shirt and boy-like banter
Flatters, charms and fools around
Drinks a treat to beat the frowns.
Daytime’s dark cause he’s inside
Soggy carpet and mahogany browns
The place sits still this time of day
Laying like a cat waiting to play.
Soon music will swell like a tide on its way
People will tap toes and may rub noses
This is Friday calm before night storm
Transforming weeds to roses.
He knows in a small place such as this
There will be merriment and hopeful poem
Drink drank deep and darkly
A home away from home.
