Fine Days

These fine days have been my ruin.
On this kind of day I resigned
My job in 'Pious Foundations'
On this kind of day I started to smoke
On this kind of day I fell in love
On this kind of day I forgot
To bring home bread and salt
On this kind of day I had a relapse
Into my versifying disease.
These fine days have been my ruin.

    These fine nights have been
    the making of me:
    last night I drank glass
    after glass of red wine and puffed
    cigarette after cigarette;
    I ate
    blue cheese
    with crackers then
    another glass of wine,
    I almost didn’t make it
    into work this morning
    on time,
    but I’m fine
