A Drink

With glass, I am a man – or so I think! –
A role to play when blessed with courtly drink:
A gin or two, then vintage port or wine
To pep me up and gift me with a shine.

I know it’s false, as I now must depend
Upon my daily shots with open end.
Insidious, it all becomes routine
To beg a drink each day for self-esteem.

    Brings to mind an old saying that goes eat, drink and be merry.
    Now it is eat, drink and be careful! Enjoyed this one even
    though i don't drink. Thanks for sharing.
