You Wanna Piece of Me

What an ugly mug
Staring at me from the bar
Always provoking

Reflections

An ugly bastard
gives me the drunken stink eye
from across the bar

Bar Room Brawl

ugly red flowers
bloom on the floor of the bar
after the big brawl

Written by Captain Hops.

References: This haiku was inspired by (or stolen from) Al Purdy, a gritty Canadian poet that was brought to my attention by Alan over at A Good Beer Blog. As you may or may not know, Alan is having a beer poetry contest where the winner gets tickets to TAP New York, the Craft Beer and Fine Food festival. We’re talking hundreds of dollars of prizes here, so get off your duff and start versing.

Beer, Good for…

Thirsty? Now you’re not.
Ugly? Now you’re pretty…Beer?
Good for what _Ales_ you.
