Drinking Solves Everything

Drinking Solves Everything

A Poem by The Official Gary B

This is definitely not a cry for help. Lol.


                   Drinking Solves Everything

      The smell is foul.

          The taste is degrading.

          But the buzz is obsessive.

          As I cry my tears, and think about all my pointless years.

          I drink away my fears.

          It takes me to a place where I can’t explain.

          I’m not the same. I’m not sober to remember yours or my own name.

          It takes away the pain like cutting your wrist. But this method is painless. Life is more fun and I’m less alert. So as she lifts her skirt, I don’t hesitate to insert.

But when the morning comes and its all said and done. 9 months later she calls me and says we have a little one.

I start think about that one night, and everything I felt.

I feel it all again, but this time plus a kid.

So I just start to drink and without a blink.

It cures the pain, it strengthens my vains, and I don’t have to stay sane.

With a baby on the way, all I can do is drink. Drink, Drink, Drink. It solves everything.

Very insightful. Nice write on the cycle of the panacea of the bottle. Also, like the sarcastic tone to: "It solves everything." Just a slight typo or two.

No definitely not a cry for help...unless you WANT shrinks tackling you to the ground.

This definitely has rhythm. the flow could be better, but otherwise I like it. Niceness. ♥
