Wine Bar Night Out

A cultural evening without any beer

Just polite conversation and vino

Discussing the merits of Shakespeare’s King Lear

Tennis boys out on a beano


No ‘old guys rule’ t-shirts or shorts-camouflage

Mindful of how we will dress

Paying attention to outward visage

Tennis boys out to impress


Vintage Blue Nun or some other cheap plonk

Rioja that costs little dosh

Dipping pork scratchings in sauvignon blanc

Tennis boys acting all posh

◄ Upton Blues Festival 2013

Not Tripoli. Not Gaza. ►

A gentle jibe at social gatherings is always interesting Brian. This for me has a twist to it as it depicts the failure to impress with panache. Tennis boys out on a beano for me would be the title !!
