One Drunkard's Blues - Poem by Paul the Lion

Lonely nights which seem sublime
Can lead to broken hearts over time
So I'll sit here and continue drinkin'
To lessen the agitation of me thinkin'
But it hurts so very bad
To ruin what I could've had

I came home one night drunk
With my breath smellin' like skunk
She said remove 'em grapefields from between your teeth
And I didn't want to start no beef

So I said honey I better get in touch with you later
She said forget it you're never touchin' me again

Hell, it's hard not to smile

    not for me Paul! lol A very honest poem indeed. Drinking too much and bad breath go hand in hand with the crazy poetic soul. So do knee jerk reactions! I hope she doesn't come back for her sake! lol 10 from not spinning yet! Tai (Report) Reply
