The Voice Of Addiction - Poem by Francis Duggan

My inner voice tells me maybe it is time
That i took a break from penning of doggerel rhyme
But the voice of addiction has it's own say
And urges me not to give rhyming away
And the voice of addiction that is never my friend
Over the voice of reason wins out in the end
And though i have known for years i lack in writing skill
Addiction is far stronger than the human will
On this beautiful sunny morning in May in the late Southern Fall
The wild birds of Nature do chirp sing and call
A weather forecast high for the day of eighteen degrees
And so calm and peaceful with the light of the sun on the trees
In the clear blue sky not one cloud of gray
It is so good to be living on such a nice day.
