A la “Cheers” Brian quaffed his beers

just like Norm of the sitcom

as was his norm

the regular form for him and I in the Plough.


Wish he was here now

with London Pride bitter ale, without fail,

per usual on phone to other mates.

But he’s now gone out

not for the routine fag

left us one last time.


Brian has quit our company

sadly depleted

not defeated.

Another pint to him lads

he’s left the pub, ah

our final rub.


Not au revoir,

one more jar;

all we are.


(written for his recent memorial booze-up at our local, the Plough, and on his family page on facebook)
