Written by George Gad Economou
as long as my highball’s not empty, I’m happy—a simple fact of life,
booze makes you happy—I don’t care for yoga, meditation, whatever else
dry, teetotaling opportunists offer—I don’t need social media
and their positivity-riddled messages—when I drink, I still know life sucks,
that the world wants me dead and gone—when I pour another stiff one,
I lock the world out—when the barkeep pours me a shot of rotgut,
he knows I’m on my lost weekend; I shall pull the trigger, would
never toss a cigarette in my drink—keep my drink replenished, I’ll
stay up all night long, till dusk turns back to dawn—with booze
in my glass, I am free, a giant stomping ants—with booze in my
glass, I can conquer the world (free or not). that’s the point; aspire
to more than you can accomplish, just in case the miracle happens.
