Go Sober For October! - Poem by Denis Martindale
I toast the man who gives up booze,
I celebrate his style,
He really hasn't much to lose
If sober for a while...
No heavy glass to strain his wrist,
No belching later on
And much more chance of being kissed
Before each night has gone...
I toast the man who stands his ground,
Not tilting to the left,
Who doesn't waste another pound
And once home feels bereft...
Not swaying as he walks about,
Not driving half awake
And with no need to act the lout
Before some great mistake...
I toast the man who doesn't need
That first drink of the day,
He knows it's better to succeed
Than drink his life away...
My coffee cup's filled to the brim,
I toast that man right now!
Come October, let's pray for him!
'God get him through... somehow! '
Denis Martindale, copyright September 2015.
The poem is about the UK TV advert I saw for the
no-drinking campaign, Go Sober For October.
