Two Rounds

you-got-drunk
I start the early round
around about three o’clock,
a couple of wines
followed by beers

and when it gets to seven
I stop for dinner
and a soft drink will do –
my break.

I start the second round
around about ten o’clock,
a couple of wines
followed by beers

I enter the night,
the time I shine most,
the fairies are asleep,
the gargoyles are out,

the nutters and crackheads
and killers are out,
the dancers and drunkards
and hookers are out,

the bats are out,
the police are out,
the moon is alive,
the stars are watching.
