A near empty glass
Is my patient companion
As my patience wanes

At the lively bar
Both the king and the jester
Sit in the same chair

a lonely figure cleans up
the once crowded bar

He poured a tall one
Sipped it deliberately
And planned his next move

The Regular

His favorite beer
Is waiting for him before
He gets to his seat.
