DAY 30 - NAPOWRIMO 2011

Posted to Writers Island


LAST SHOUT?

Before you know it…
well…it’s all over.
That’s bar the shouting,
which in this here case
(and here at this place
- The Rub a Dub Dub -
which in this here case
is only the name
of your local pub
- not some Cockneyesque
Rhyming Slang thingy -
on tonight’s mission
to get legless; drunk,
you and your mates)
means shouting as in
shouting up the ale.
Your final round of drinks


YOUR FINAL ROUND OF DRINKS
(A Syllable Sestina)

“Your final round of drinks?”
Winks – “Pour off, my sound gal!”
Mal Brown sinks four… sigh… quaff
Froth shall fly! Blink, roar, frown…
Browned off? Normal… Drinks dry
five rounds – stinks of alc… More…?

  9. Everytime I come here, I hear music. Today is no exception: "Those were the days, my friend, we'd thought they'd never end, we'd sing and dance forever and a day. We'd fight and never loose, we'd live the life we'd choose. Those were the days, oh yes those were the days." Thanks for the laughs and the music Stan. Hope you continue always,

    Elizabeth

  11. Hahaha, "tonight's mission to get legless" :-D This wasted me for sure! Those Missions seem to intensify somehow. Take care, because I hope to read more even after April.
    Thanks and see you! (I'll be watching this place ;-))

  13. The last shout...what a great way to end the month! You really are quite clever. I'm linking your blog on mine...consider the link to be "virtual reflective tape", making it easier to find my way back here so I can enjoy another round, another day.
