Memories And Whiskey


Comes down to a matter of choice
Choosin' stones instead of roses
Tried to sleep but it is no use
Booze and the brunette from the bar
Did not quiet all the regret
Grabbed my pen and these words came out:

Dark Muse demands so
Descend swiftly
Swarmin' memories
Were that I were able
To allow forgivenss
To settle in

But cannot or will not
Does not matter
So cowboy up,
Though deeply grievin',
Keep on mixin'
Memories and whiskey

Seekin' shelter
In the wrong places
Holdin' what I've got,
Though it don't mix well
Keep on pourin'
Memories and whiskey

Could start doin' right
And quit doin' wrong
But she don't care
So it don't matter
Keep on stirin'
Memories and whiskey

She taught me good
How not to forgive
And not to forget
So I'll keep movin
On down the line
From one heart to the next

And I'll keep pourin'
These words and mixin'
Misery with tears
And stirrin' regret
And order up more
Memories and whiskey

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
