Shadigo Claws

Rookie (1990-2090 / Phoenix)

Judged by the Company One Keeps


One night in late October,
When I was far from sober,
Returning with my load with manly pride,
My feet began to stutter,
So I lay down in the gutter,
And a pig came near and lay down by my side;
A lady passing by was heard to say,
'You can tell a man who boozes,
By the company he chooses, '
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.

    I love this but should you be drinking at 16? springs to mind. This poem has completeness and humor. Very funny and it is true, we are judged by the company we keep, which is a shame because I am friendly with most. Tai (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
