Poetry Corner: “Legless Lager Louts”

Legless Lager Louts

A phenomena in the United Kingdom I am told
a few pints and the timid become bold
until the police put them in a chokehold

You see them in most European cities and tourist destinations
invariably an Irish pub
a safe place to eat bangers and mash grub
eaten by tattooed and a Proud Boy thug
or rioting at a party on a Greek island without shame
urinating all over the place with nothing but their anger to blame
gay abandon is their game
their obvious excuse is lame
having to take to a shitty job each day on the train
looks as if the lager has got to their brain
but I am thinking they are inane
