Alcoholism


Beers, wines and spirits
Produce some relaxant effects.
Addiction to alcohol
Puts you into a pothole.

You drink alcohol as a daily habit.
You sip it like a natural water.
Just in a bit,
Your life is in danger.

You think it's fun and you're hot.
But you are not!
Intoxication and dehydration
Are some mild effects.

You live in fear and escape problems.
You think alcohol is the answer.
Cirrhosis, brain damage and cancer
Are the irreversible effects.

If you want to live longer,
Be smarter than your doctor.
Vodka, gin, tequila, whisky,  brandy...
Put them all away!

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
