"I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd, I stand and look at them long and long.

One big black beer, or maybe a lite.
Two beers down you begin to glow,
And you’ll be singing, before you know.”

A theatre where once, famous names used to play.
Its stage steeped with memories of happier days,
Of concerts, comedians and actors in plays.”
