The Black Stuff - Poem by Fergus Anthony

He came to school with a blacker eye
Than the bottle of stout he’d found and
Drunk. His father had beaten him
For not bringing it home.

    Like Kelly below, not sure whether to laugh or cry. I hope it's just a product of your imagination and not based on a true incident.
    In any case, it's well written and was fun to read. Thanks.
