by Kipling, Rudyard
...illogical, elate,
 He greets the embarrassed Gods, nor fears
To shake the iron hand of Fate
 Or match with Destiny for beers.

Lo, imperturbable he rules,
 Unkempt, desreputable, vast --
And, in the teeth of all the schools,
 I -- I shall save him at the last!...Read More

by Wright, James
...In the Shreve High football stadium,
I think of Polacks nursing long beers in Tiltonsville,
And gray faces of ******* in the blast furnace at Benwood,
And the ruptured night watchman of Wheeling Steel,
Dreaming of heroes.

All the proud fathers are ashamed to go home.
Their women cluck like starved pullets,
Dying for love.

Their sons grow suicidally beautiful
At the beginning of October,
And gallop ter...Read More

...otel - 
A most unusual place for him to go - 
But there he was and there she was as well 
Sitting alone. He ordered beers for two. 

She was so large a girl that when they came 
He gave the waiter twice the usual tip. 
She smiled without surprise, told him her name, 
And as the name trembled on Henry's lip, 

His parched soul, swelling like a desert root, 
Broke out its delicate dream upon the air; 
The mountains shook with earthquake under foot; 
An angel seized ...Read More

by Lawson, Henry that way. 

But beware of the town -- there is poison for years 
In the pleasure you find in the depths of long beers; 
For the bushman gets bushed in the streets of a town, 
Where he loses his friends when his cheque is knocked down; 
He is right till his pockets are empty, and then -- 
He can hump his old bluey up country again....Read More

...used to know;
The girls I used to kiss;
The coin I used to blow:
The bars I used to haunt;
The racket and the row;
The beers I didn't want
(I wish I had 'em now).

Day after day the same,
Only a little worse;
No one to grouch or blame--
Oh, for a loving curse!
Oh, in the night I fear,
Haunted by nameless things,
Just for a voice to cheer,
Just for a hand that clings!

Faintly as from a star
Voices come o'er the line;
Voices of ghosts afar,
Not in this world of mine;
Live...Read More
