Attic Verse

At·tic:  adjective

1. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of Greece or of Athens.
2. ( often lowercase ) displaying simple elegance, incisive intelligence, and delicate wit. 

To all who seek, and all who follow:
Come! Welcome to the Arms of Colo!
Where Joy and Wit and Wine abound:
Whate'er you seek may here be found.
For here the Wisdom, here the Truth
The veritas in vino still
Here the smoke and sloping roof
To blow your mind and bang your skull;
And here the laughter, here the rhymes;
The songs that set the room aglow;
Here the best and warmest times
That life can offer you; and so:
To all the friends who share their lives,
I offer up the highest Fives;
And to our Host with wayward charms,
I raise this toast: The colo’s arms.
