Never Again Never Doing It Again.


Waking up after only three hours of sleep
heads pounding after a long night of drink
stomach is turning
i did this to myself
i better get up if i can
better get to the toilet
everything from last night is about to make a show.

Taking the first steps
still drunk, dizzy and blurry eyed
i manage to get to the toilet
head over the bowl
and here we go
hold on to the sides
all rays of colours hit the water
what range of beverages did i indulge in
what ever it was its all coming up now.

After ten minutes of hell i make it back to bed
lying there thinking
'why the hell do you do it'
'never again, i'm never doing it again'
after some more sleep
i wake up
go down staires
mouths dry, sweat running from my forehead
opening the fridge
i grab myself a bottle of carlsberg
just to cool off
just to ease the pain from the night before
i grab myself a paper
get back to bed
and read the happenings of the day.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
