£1.45 pint

A poem about university from the first pint to finding the best times and the best people.

£1.45 pint

£1.45 a pint
on my own
with people unknown

Counting the change
to give to you
in trust you’ll return
with a £1.45 pint

In a place afar
I felt at home
growing space
in the heart
(for the love of the place
& the people)
where it all started
with a £1.45 pint

People unknown
soon became
trusted friends

Trust started
with £1.45
in change
for a pint
& in plane sight
everything was alright

The view
the people
I still remember
everything since
that first pint

The fun and the joy
to the hardest day
I remember
every detail

When we left
it was suitably
at the pub
where it all started

At that moment
for some
it was the last goodbye

The price of a pint today
so much more
but there will be
no greater memories
of that first pint
that led to some of the greatest
times of my life
all starting
with a £1.45 pint
(or four).
