The Three Pilchards


The Three Pilchards

Sat outside the café they were pretending to frequent

(They frequently pretended to do this

And this was not the first time

And was destined not to be the last)

The conversation soon came around to ‘how ‘The Three Pilchards’ got it’s name’.

Theories were offered

And the process of deliberation began.

After three hours

(And numerous drinks)

The trio were no nearer a definitive theory – nor were they likely to be; as, since they had been meeting there for over twenty years,

and ‘The Three Pilchards’ (formerly the ‘Tantanoy Tea Rooms’) had been renamed in their honour, who was likely to have told them this fact?
