The Blacksmith Shop

In candlelight they know my name
They say, ”Hey baby, how ya bin?
When ja get in?
The regular with water on the side?”
I love this place, I love the vibe
The pirate lore, the bartender boy next door
Forget Patty O’s, the best hurricanes are here
Piano player voodoo, and my long neck, long gone beer
The oldest bar in town, in the country (can that be right?)
One more round and I’m sure you’ll get lucky tonight
Tell them I sent you, give them a toast
And on your way out, say hi my ghost

Closing in on the end of the month. Day 29 of the NaPoWriMo challenge, and today’s prompt is to write a poem in the form of a review. You can review either animate or inanimate things, real places or imaginary places. You can write in the style of an online review (think Yelp) or something more formal that you might find in a newspaper or magazine.
