This table is reserved for The Poetry
for this pub and for all who sail on it
A villanelle, pantoum or ballad
or free verse, sestina or sonnet

It's not for a hen night or party
but for words that take note of the times
It's not trying to sell you a dinner
it is ticking out meter and rhyme

It is not to be used for a piss-up,
A chess match or poker card dealing
But for verse that reverses perception
and transports you with laughter and feeling

It may move you, describe or lampoon:
So the poetry will be along soon
