Horny half-wits drink pints and scratch arses, not always their own.

Blokes get refused admission and the girls take the doormen home.

Police patronise plastered adolescents vomiting on their own shoes.

Non-English speaking night shift staff get your order all confused.

Legless people pay five euro a slice in a Health inspectors nightmare.

Girls dressed in the exact same style give advice on what not to wear.

Temple Bars cobble stones may look nice but aren’t easy on the feet.

Non-Smokers make exceptions and all smokers’ cigarettes deplete.

No bus running so you share a taxi of five because you’re all broke

You’re the last one out, 27 euro taxi fare, you’ve got a 12 euro float.

When the door won’t open, you think; wrong key or wrong house?

Eventually you’re in and waltz up the stairs like a melody by Strauss.

Accepting defeat to the belt on your trousers, you sleep in your clothes,

Head spinning, feeling sick, thinking, why we do this; nobody knows.
