A Bar ~ TEXAS COWBOY

“A. BAR!” a. poem! May 24, 2019 [Freya’s Day]

There’s-a-place, where you can come and drink,


Poison! (pause) and-talk-“death-talk!” ’til you STINK,


OF-THE POISON [which] you-have-drunk!


You-can-stay UNTIL you-smell-like-“a-skunk,”
OR! until-you-SCARE-“the-other-regular-patrons,”


With – screaming or crying or-various-other-HATE-trons!*

Stay-as-long-as-you-like IF you-have-“cash-to-bear!”
“Bearer Bonds!” They’re-called-over-here!

So, with cash and manners well in hand,
You-can-come-for-some-poison! and-maybe-a-band,
Which can play some tunes – of romance and loss!

IF YOU SEE-HIM-THERE, BUY-A-BREW FOR YOUR BOSS!And tip-the-waitress! or-the-waiter, if-you-please;
Talk of death – and-“the-birds-and-the-bees!”

Lose [remember] inhibitions that-your-society-has-placed,


In(to)-your-“craw,” and-forget-what-you’ve-faced,


That-was “bad”-that-day! or-whenever in-your-life

And/or – GET AWAY! from-your-nagging-wife!

OR – Get-away-from-the-spousal-abuse-of-your-hus-BAND,


Who-may-now-be search-ing for-“more comf’able-e- lAnd,”
Like – other women to-love to-night!!


HE-MIGHT-BE-AT-THE-BAR, but – You-two-CAN’T-fight,
For-IF-you-do you’ve-both-VIO-LATED-“The Be Calm Law!”


REMEMBER? [again, it is:] “Drink-as-much-as-you-like, but-it’s-a-‘flaw,’


To: NOT-be-flashin’-money- and-don’t-scare-people-or-brawl!”

WELCOME-TO-THE-BAR: WALK-IN-PERHAPS, [walk]OUT! Just-CRAW-l!**

** – Yup, something-must-be “stuck-in-your-craw!” 🙂 – Ha, ha!

    Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
