No Excuse to Booze


Dear son Bruce,

Let us cruise to Syracuse
where a bunch of prodigal youth
with wealth profuse
decided to choose
blood and booze
with no clues
that when blood oozed
they stepped right into criminal shoes
and the law accepted no excuse
to set them loose.

This poor bunch of Syracuse!

Kid, do party but do not booze
because when you booze
you tend to produce verbal abuse
and set yourself footloose.
So let us call it a truce
with hope that you'll ne'er confuse
ecstasy with booze.

God bless your daily nous,
Your loving grandfather,
Clement Ambrose.

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year's pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
