Treasure Island

Philip Carter

(London)

Bar Banter


If a man talks using English words
But his accent's from the north
Can it be said he is speaking Scottish
By the way the words come forth
This was a subject that came up
In my local pub today
The banter between customers and
Staff was a good end to my day
Though my day has ended and
I'll soon be homeward bound
There will be more chats like this
Between the staff and those around.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
