Limerick Ode To Bartender Appreciation Day

Happy Bartender Appreciation Day! (first Friday of December)

Limerick Ode To Bartender Appreciation Day
By Madeleine Begun Kane

A fellow walked into a bar
And ordered a “smoked cable car.”
“Outta rum,” barkeep said.
“How’s a sidecar instead?”
It was close but, alas, no cigar.


When you are ailing,
a bartender’s frequently
a stout companion.


UPDATE: February 24 is World Bartender Day.

    Appreciate the bartender
    Who understands you, though you slur.
    Good advice given out
    Along with the great stout.
    All top brands so you cannot err.

    I know I’m too late for this one, but had this in my collection and worth sharing:


    There once was the Bartender Barb
    That when you’d come in from the yard
    She’d set down your drink
    And lead you to think
    That life wasn’t so very hard.
