WordParty Poetry Challenge - Day 25 - Bar Poem

Day 25
by Bear
Bar Poem

Write a bar poem of no more than 25 lines where you meet a fictional/mythological/historical/character(s) for drinks.

Is it a modern day dive bar or a old-time pub?  What do you and your compatriots drink and discuss?  Are you talking, playing darts or pool?  Dancing?  Making out? All of the above?

Here are some ideas to get you going:
  • Maybe you go to a bar with Miss Piggy and she gets into a jealousy driven fight with another woman.
  • Maybe you meet Mary Poppins at a pub and she feels completely out of place and says nothing sipping on her Irish coffee.
  • Maybe you go to a sushi bar with Izanami and she goes into a drunken rage because people stopped worshiping her for Buddha.
  • Maybe you meet Richard Feynman at a bar who spends the evening correcting all your errors.
  • Maybe you spend the evening being condescended to by T.S. Eliot.
  • Maybe you and Benjamin Franklin people watch at a tavern and make snarky comments.
  • Maybe a Galileo marvels at the new technologies of a present day bar.
Title the poem with the name of the bar (I.E. At The Pie 'n' Mash, At The Elbo Room etc)
