Alcohol - Poem by Randy McClave
Drinking never made me a happier person
Nor did it allow me to enjoy my life more
If anything it caused my attitude to worsen
Then in the end I ended up face down on the floor.
It caused me to argue and also to fight
It made me believe that I am someone that I'm not
The drink made me obnoxious and never polite
All from this drink that I had happily bought.
I have done things that I am ashamed to admit
I have spent money that I should have saved
To that addictive drink I did happily submit
To that drink I am hopelessly and forever enslaved.
I’ve waken in the morning with terrible headaches
From the drinking for my relaxation and fun
I know from that drunken state I made many mistakes
And remembering any of them now, I know none.
It doesn't make me smarter and of course no wiser
I know one day it will be my destruction and downfall
It made me a bully a cheat and a womanizer
All from the drink I love, alcohol.
