Ballyhoo - Poem by Francis Duggan

When alcohol has drunk men talking ballyhoo
You get more sense out of monkeys at the zoo
Who often scream at each other in a heated rage
In their noisy disagreements that lead to conflict in their cage
At the local pub late on Saturday the voices are loud
Where twenty drunk men becomes a noisy crowd
The way some men often are with too much alcohol in
When their loud voices become an incoherent din
You may ask what is ballyhoo It is the babble of noise
The sort you hear among young children when playing with their toys
But drunken ballyhoo often does lead to fight
At the local pub on a Saturday night
When alcohol strips the mind of common sense
And some drunk at a shouted word does take offense.
