The Brown Bear Review
Late one night as I walked towards Wapping
along dark alleys that are no place for stopping
I encountered a sanctuary to hide me away
directly beneath Docklands Light Railway.
It’s beaming lights shone out of the dark
filling me with merriment, “Rejoice!” I did hark
with ale for my ailments I could thus repair
as stood before me a tavern – The Brown Bear.
Bustling and wheezing through the door I came lurching
and was regrettably faced with all manner of urchin
half-breeds and goblins downing juice at the bar
like cackling hyenas from the depths of Afrikaa.
The pub was a relic, an antique from the past
it served bangers and mash and chips to the last
closed at the weekends, a lack of beer garden
the loos stank to high heaven, and so did the barman.
Quiz night was Thursdays, Thai food on the menu
and thankfully it was a children-less venue,
I ate at the cost of £7.50
but I did not expect a prawn salad so shifty.
However, if must be known, much in it’s favour
the Guinness was sporting a splendiferous flavour
the service was top notch, my regards to the gaffer
for employing the services of a hard-working Saffa.
As the evenings set in and your work begets thirst
you enter The Brown Bear as though you were cursed
it is wanting of style and panache, I despair
and thus I advise you: DO NOT GO THERE!!
