What A Waste Of Good Tequila - Poem by Juan Olivarez

What a waste of good Tequila,
Throwing up on potted plants.
Alacasias and bouganvillas,
And on Maui's Levi pants.

You should never drink like water,
Agave nector with such a punch.
Now you're cursing moms and daughters,
And worst of all, you lost your lunch.
