Good Music

3 of 8 in the Jemverse series ‘Circular Sussex’

It’s been three whole years
since the music was good
and there’s been little change in that time
For last night at the Crown
as the beers went down
the music was vibrant and fine

We played games of pool
then the Uno of course
the same game we started back then
The rules might have changed
and the deck re-arranged
but it’s great to be back here again

And never stopped playing it – keeping the scores running every time we go to a pub together. This year we started our walk again from Winchester, so went back to the Crown and Anchor where it all started to continue playing the same game we began three years earlier! Currently our scores are both approaching a quarter of a million points!).

The Bishop on the Bridge

The Bishop on the Bridge
in Winchester town
the Itchen flows swiftly by
And we sit with a beer
in the garden out back
my brother David and I

When we were here last
three years ago now
so expensive we thought was the beer
So returning again
we needed to come
and have another one here
