The Continental Drift

It’s closing down,
dying, at least a decade
after giving up the ghost.
Once a great dive bar,
its fortunes rose and fell with the waves
of the neighborhood
but now, the local tastes
have proven too rich
for what the Continental could provide.

It is doubtful
that had they continued
serving that steady diet of scuzz rock
of generations past
that they’d survive any better
but at least the club’s demise
would be a little bit more honorable.
Rest In Peace, Continental,
as you should have
when you buried your purpose
with the bands
all those years ago.

I used to write quite a bit more.
