TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM

Folder: 
NEW WORKS

A friend pops open

a beer

in the apartment

and then crashes.

 

He's snoring away 

and I'm looking at a full bottle

of beer

and feeling ambivalent.

 

The beer will be flat

in the morning

and probably poured

down the drain.

 

Wouldn't it be better

if I pissed it out

rather than it

be unceremoniously dumped?

 

I wrestle with moral issues

like drinking someone else's beer

until deciding 

on taking the higher road

and drinking the beer.

 

I'm risking a more severe hangover

and a friend's ire

but the greater good

lies in the sanctity

of the wondrous brew.

 

I might be more tired

and more heavy eyed come morning

but I must take one for the team

and put the beer to good use.
