Aces Held High-As Drunkenly I Do Cheat And Lie, Do I Die? - Poem by Michael Gale

Recently while sipping coke and brandy thru a straw...
I teetered and swayed and finially had falled.
My words were slurred and talking was rough...
I had given to others, words real mouthy and tough.
T'was fro' this mood that i'd got in a fight and
recieved a real licking that t'was tough...
Well soon aft' i'd learned that i'd had enough.
Others who were sober could see through my
untruthful dumb bluff...
As i staggered aft' getting up fro' my bad beating...
I'd no longer more drunkenly play poker and get caught cheating.
For the moral lesson of this story is don't get drunk and
cheat at cards and get caught, while cussing and lying,
or for sure you'll be badly hurting and bleeding.
