Al's

A Poem by Patrick L. Fannin

 

On the corner of the slums

a brick building stands

its a college town with a drinking problem

Vagabonds filled with cheap booze scuttle

asking for loose change and spare cigarettes

the crowd piles in and out

fighting the urge to drink

vs.

the urge to hate the current band playing

but soon the headliners are up

the hometown heroes

who are friend with most of the patrons

the crowd returns in full for one set

after that everyone departs

some do straggle behind to congrats their friends

but eventually they all leave

for their respective parties

to get drunk,stoned and laid
