Alcoholism - Poem by Rosie Bourget

Feelings of fear
You grab a beer

You say to Smear
Don't worry my friend is near

You want Alcohol every day
That's your way to get away

Whiskey during mid-day
To drive your blues away

And you think it's okay
To live your life this way?

No way, tell alcohol to go away
Don't throw your life away

My friend has died the same way
So stay away or it'll drive you away

Drinking Bud Light
Or fine wine all night!

You're too bright
To depend on Miller Light

After drinking all that beer
How can you see clear?

If you don't want to die
Just kiss your bottles goodbye

Alcohol is like a Drug
That makes you act like a dog

Some nights of the week
You feel weak

You say my name is Nick
And I am an alcoholic

    A wonderful poem with superb rhyme.
    A great and timely message to everyone.
    Alcoholism is an addiction that will destroy the core
    of our being.
    Insightful and great poem, Rosie. Beautifully crafted.
