As Little Venice, the venue for Parole Parlate, one of Worcester UK’s spoken word event venues, closes, here’s my tribute to them with a peek into the future.
Little Venice – LV
Little Venice, LV,
tell us, just how can it be
that you are going, leaving town?
We’ve shed a tear; were really down,
to hear that you will close.
Reading out loud, many a career
has started and continued here.
LV’s sold us Peroni beer,
sent us home full of good cheer.
‘The end of an era’
has been said [not that we’re ever cliché led!]
Our new place will be The Old Rec,
Parole Parlate to bedeck
their upper floors as we did yours,
this has given us all pause … for thought.
We’ll meet there from May this year.
Hope they have Peroni beer!
