Hung Over - Poem by Colm Hayes

Moderation thou art a stranger in this land
Excess the only language ever spoken
One drink is all I planned
But those plans were quickly broken

    Seems your plans were foiled. Great poem, short and sweet. Well, not so sweet, I'm sure you know what I mean. (Report)Reply
