Another Thursday evening … and it's to the pub I trek,
Well actually I get a lift … but that don't rhyme … so heck.
First it's time to grab a beer and play the quiz machine,
We win some cash … but no payout … how can it be so mean ?
The landlord gives a refund … to refuse would be quite rude,
Now looking for a table … and ordering some food.
There's a corner table empty … so rapidly we take …
Our seats … and grab a menu … and think about a steak.
The meals arrive quite quickly … there's plenty here to savour,
A lovely piece of chicken … with a sauce of mushroom flavour.
The meals now completed … it's time for H's quiz,
A set of fifty questions … that's just the way it is.
Two others join our table … the team is now complete.
We are the reigning champions … the ones you have to beat.
With a crackin' score of forty … we really thought we'd won,
Then 'H' announces that another team has forty one !
We lost the quiz, but never mind … no need to shed a tear,
It's not yet half eleven … so there's time for one more beer.
Another night of quizzing, entertainment, beer and grub.
And finally round midnight … it's time to leave the pub.
