No More Hangovers - Poem by A . T . Perkins

I used to drink - alot,
this guy said, 'Hey,
try this, no more hangovers.'
So I gave it a shot,
and I'll be damned,
no more hangovers.
I didn't smell of alcohol I
could work long hours,
and nobody could tell;
but, he forgot to warn me about the
hurt, the pain, the shits,
and the flu.
All this to avoid a hangover.
Why does everything
turn out wrong?
I still don't drink,
I don't do anything now, except
battle this demon,
Day, after day.
The price I pay
cause I tried it the easy way.
