At a pub to get a drink 

I see a blonde who gives me a wink

Raising my glass, I give a smile

Then I get a good look at the profile

On the face is a five o'clock shadow

The arms are muscular, not shallow

I hear the voice from this blonde.

Sounds like Sean Connery's James Bond

I pay my tab and out the door

That pub I will not drink in no more

Thanks for reading. I'm about to go to bed, but I think I will sleep alone with my teddy bear instead.

I enjoyed reading this, but the last line is a bit strange. That is caused by the combination of the words "not" and "no more." I think you should get rid of the not. Now it is unclear what you are trying to say. In a way it resembles a double negative, which can always lead to confusion. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed reading this, but I don't really get the conclusion.

Thanks for reading. It was late at night when I wrote this and after 6 beers, the double negatives tend to come out of me. Maybe I was trying poetic license. Guess my license should be revoked.

I'm not an expert on your back catalogue but I could swear we've visited this theme more than once!?

Yes. I believe so. I was reading something from another writer with a similar vein. So, it was late at night and 6 beers in, just came up with this.
Bert Bloomberg pointed out my double negatives in the last line.
But I must have wanted it to sound that way. That's another thing the PC, woke, cancel culture want to take away from us. Our double negatives.
I'll be damn if I let that happen while I still have an ounce of breath in me! :) Thanks for reading.
