Drinks All Around - Poem by Kris Clark

‘I wonder how I’ve even managed to handle it

You caught me now, bruised and red-handed

I just can’t explain why I’m dying to cry and to bleed

Drinks all around, but for everyone but me.

I’m feeling nauseous, swooning into the room

Blood clots beneath the skin soon grow into bloom

I just can’t explain why I’m dying to wait and see

Drinks all around, don’t worry, the vodka’s all on me.

This is pathetic, this regret is drunken madness

This is so lame, everything consumed by sadness

You make me want to breathe it in, write it all down

No need to hurry, free drinks all around.

And for some reason unknown unto me

I’ve never been captured but I’ve never been free

Now you’re not here, I will not make a sound

From me to you, free drink’s all around.

You cannot smile, it’s all unallowed

There’s a thin line between being lost and found

This may seem pathetic, but the screams are too loud

I’m on my deathbed, but there’s free drinks all around.

I wonder how I’ve even managed to handle it

You caught me now, bruised and red-handed

I just can’t explain why I’m dying to cry and to bleed

Drinks all around, but for everyone but me.’
