BAR SPLENDOR

No better way to launch the weekender Than dropping in to see my local bartender He whips up the meanest margarita in his blender I can relax and to him all my troubles surrender He knows the right thing to say to either gender He’s everyone’s closest friend by no means a pretender He commiserated when I needed a defender While suspended for snapping someone’s suspender He cheered me up when I was the thwarted contender And understood about my questionable fender bender He let me run a tab when I was short on tender That’s where he drew the line to not be a lender After all he had his own issues with a big vendor I always cleared my tab so at no time be an offender Never being so bold as to ask for an extender For fear of a dry spell for services he’d render Submitted on August 25, 2018, for CONTEST NO.485 Sponsored by BRIAN STRAND Originally posted in April, 2018

Oh you are at it again with monorhyme. I think you are the monorhyme queen, Line. Very cute one! (I've never had a bartender!!)
