Why I Drink - Poem by Kimani wa Mumbi

They say that I clown a lot when I drink,
That I act a kid, at times.
They hate what I do,
They hate me.
But I don't drink to be genteel -
I do to forget my troubles.
I drink to bring out my inner child,
Which we all possess.
I drink not because it's sweet,
Or that the bartender likes my English
Or my poetry,
I do not drink to act like Queen Elizabeth,
Or her Prince Charming Charles.
I drink to act a kid,
To clown,
For you to hate.
I won't care!
It's also good for your bowels
Ask Tim.
