so it goes, alcohol, drunk, wine, poetry, steven humphreys

So it goes

Wino

so it goes

take a drink

hold your nose

where it flows

head to toes

we all know…

drink grape

act like an ape

can’t escape

tasty evil grape

drizzled down the nape

forgot where I was

who I was

who I’d been with

on that first date

(hum… what was her name?)

where the money went

why I’m bent

down

hung over every day

have to get my

measuring tape

time to settle down

stop being a rodeo clown

sit down

bow down

get down

lose that frown

stop pounding down

and drink

pure

water

instead

It tends to

clear

the head

(saving you from a life threatening liver transplant?)

keeping you from

becoming

prematurely

(Note- if you are Fred, best repeat reading thrice…)
