Why Am I Drinking?


Why am i Drinking?
To stop wishful thinking
To stop false hoping
To not start doping

To blend in with the rest
Because I'm not the best
So i can forget about the pain
Because I'm not a swain

Why am i drinking
To enjoy myself without thinking
To drown my stentorian sorrow
So i can't feel hollow till the morrow

To savor the marvelous wine
I wish i was on the front line
But I'll have a merrymaking time
Without committing any crime.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
