A Shot Of Rum - Poem by Barry Middleton

pour me a shot of rum
before I leave this place

so I may have the strength
for destiny's embrace

I know I must depart
still I would rather stay

but I am past the hope
that I had yesterday

pour me a shot of rum
before the bitter end

and please hand me the jug
I just may find a friend
