Can we stop off
On the way home
From school for sweets?

We can stop off
On the way
To the pub for fags!

Tonight’s menu)

Shell garage

Food on the go,
For people on the move.

Snap your fingers
To the rhythm of a
Pork pie and a pint of milk.

Hit on a coffee
For those wide awake moments.

Mars bars and Lucozade
For that morning …

Greenhouse

The ambience,
Suits ladies who lunch,
Take their time over brunch,
Who like their gossip hot,
And their coffee black.

Lucky

If you feel Lucky,
Head down the strip
For some mainstream chow,
Mein on the menu,
Though not by chance
Is this a numbers game,
But you don’t have to gamble
Whilst old favourites are there,
And hunger is the …

No 10

Number 10,
Few crumbs
Of bodily comforts
Though the starving soul
May seek solace
Inside
These whitewashed walls.

Food for the brain,
Food for thought
& food accepted gratefully.

Snack Bar

Snack!
A clear breach,
Of the trades descriptions act,
When full blown portions,
Are the hallmark,
Of standard fare,

For the morning after,

Salt and (malt) vinegar,
Pickled eggs and gravy,
Fish cakes are a winner,

Baked beans, scampi,
Ketchup, tartare sauce,
Donner kebab if you …

The Waggon And Horses

The echoes,
Of bygone times
Rattle around inside
The defunct public house,
The last night in quiet contrast,
To the raucous piano bashing
Of its heyday,
Still fresh in my mind,
The stink of cigarette smoke
And beer stained carpet.…
