Well, Poetry lovers, a second review has come in for the Slagg’s Cafe. Thanks to the lovely poet, Trisha Broomfield
Review of The Slagg’s Cafe
At the Slagg’s, fags
ash joins sugar sifting onto
wiped ‘clean’ with apron hems
and woolly sleeves.
Tea is distinguishable
by the smell
sandwiches curl like Mrs
Slagg’s half hidden hair,
but prices are somehow fair
and the company’s good.

Isn’t that a wonderful and fair review?!
Trisha points out in the last two lines what really matters. Brilliant, thank you Trisha.
It’s funny but most of us remember ashtrays being in abundance yet somehow ash still landed on the table, and yes, that sugar! It followed you about. It’s become so soulless now in those little packets.
Apron hems and woolly sleeves just remind me of growing up frankly. Hands up whose Mum didn’t do this? There! Not many are raised.
A lovely spot of nostalgia there, Trisha, besides a strong review that will get even more punters in! (I wouldn’t encourage vegetarians though – and God help you if you use Applepay!)
Thank you for tuning in, Poetry Lovers, stay glued as we’ll be back real soon with more poetry antics…
