Pubbing & Clubbing (late 60s / early 70s)


The pulsating beat

searing into your head

like a hot poker


The stench of stale beer

on a smoke-laden atmosphere


Clinking glasses

Euphoric screams

Skull-piercing strobe lighting


Empty condom machines

in toilets lit by ultraviolet

to deter drug users




Pimps & Posers



gelatine-haired youths

chatting up gullible

semi-drunk girls

who have to squat

between parked cars

for a pee

on the walk back to

Sir Galahad's

seedy bed-sit.


Yeah ! Seen it all.

Got the T-shirt;

I used to be young too !

Thank you Big Sal.
I'm still bumping around in the dark until I get the feel of this site.
For example there are plenty text formatting options, but it is a waste of time using them because everything just re-sets to house style....damned annoying.

Anything but an empty condom machine!

Shit, vasectomy anyone?


No, but you managed to instill humor, intelligence and many more things into this piece of nostalgia. I liked it.?
