Presence Of Alchohol

It is associated with worship
And it needs no whip
No color but only holy place
Despite gifted art, it looses its race

It is rarely used in presence of alcohol
It not only gives bad odor and foul smell
But draws attention of audience too
The magic of melody looses and that is very much true

Live show before reputed people
It may invite trouble
If any artist comes under spell
And tries to perform not so well

Even art may look good
But not appreciated enough as food
The intelligents love the artistic form
But not people often drunk and perform

It is highly objected
The organizers are ill rated
Their repute comes under cloud
Show may be good not appreciated aloud

So it must be taken as not only as stage show
But holy act to come with spirit and blow
This is how artists are well recognized
When their show is skillfully organized

    Interesting ideas. Yes, alcohol may impair art. However, in the case of writers like Poe. Many of their masterpieces were written under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Still. I have not used it my self for the past thirty years. It did not make things go better for me. Holy use? Yes. But If I gave myself communion I would have it every day and several times a day. Moderation is the key. Abstinence, in my case.

    As with a bit on the side,
    there's regret
    when you wake in the morning,
    when what it is
    is much less admired. (Report) Reply

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,
