On Drinking.

I drink for pleasure,

The wonder of taste,

My family drinks to try to erase

All their pain and confusion, 

To find absolution.

As one might say,

"They get completely shit-faced."


There are other forms of escape, 

That is quite true, 

Most of them harmless

For me and you.

And that is quite fine!

It's just drawing the line

Between a heavy drinker

Who is a casual thinker,

And the heavy thinker 

Who is a casual drinker,

Occasionally requires red tape.


Sometimes they're both

And sometimes they're not.

But either way, really, 

You've got what you've got.

Me and Mr's Guinness and Jameson all agree.
