I see them perched upon their stools,
Inebriated, drunken fools
That love has chosen to deny
Now left without the will to try

They populate the seedy bars,
These sympathetic Lochinvars
Toss peanut shells upon the rug,
Seek solace in a frosty mug.

The night rolls on. Their lonliness
Bears down unbearably with stress.
All women seem like movie stars
To losers smitten in the bars.

Approaching any gal they see
They try to garner sympathy
And, possibly, the lady will
Erase the feel of lonely's chill

And let them play the Galahad,
Although they do it very bad
And make exceptions for their sake
And some small pity on them take.

No takers, though, grant their request
Nor even show small interest
So they sit, victims of love's wars
Alone and smitten in the bars.

LOL ! What a romantic !
Put down the glass !
You are soooooo comedic.
Now you've knocked yourself out with this one.
You must be 'seeing stars'.

Sir Balladeer,
With this poem you did endear
Only because I was drinking beer.
Up to your usual great.

Sad but true, in the bars, or on the lonely avenue. Hard to see clear when you've had too much beer. Good commentary on life and great poem as usual, Balladeer.

Everything tends to look better after a few of those.
Wrong place to look for love in my opinion!

Great one Balladeer!!!

Judging from the bars in my neighborhood (one or two every block or so) There must be a million or so lonely people out there.
Another great poem!
