Blinded By The Light - Poem by Jeffrey Philip Clegg

I wake up on the side of the road
I have no idea how I got here

My head feels like a lead zeppelin
My pants are soaked in piss
My shirt is plastered to my chest with vomit
My lungs are still smoking
I reek of cheap alcohol

Was I with a stripper last night
or was that last year?

I look up at the golden sky
The song White Bird is soaring
through my mind
and I think:

It's a beautiful day...
