Judged By The Company One Keeps - Poem by Shadigo Claws


One night in late October,
When I was far from sober,
Returning with my load with manly pride,
My feet began to stutter,
So I lay down in the gutter,
And a pig came near and lay down by my side;
A lady passing by was heard to say,
'You can tell a man who boozes,
By the company he chooses, '
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.

    I love this but should you be drinking at 16? springs to mind. This poem has completeness and humor. Very funny and it is true, we are judged by the company we keep, which is a shame because I am friendly with most. Tai (Report) Reply
