Beers in Bruges

Drinking beers from Bruges to Paris
“ah you like good beer”
he says in halted words
punching ticket in boxy hat
winking, “i’ll be right back”

Six small cans of Stella Artois
“They fell off a truck”
gratis
not as good as Grimbergen
but free

He said, i am French but i haven’t a plan
just a guy doing what i can
i’ve been to the forests and plains
and i like my wine and friends
i wonder what is like to be there
a little envious perhaps
but not ready to trade
