Flowetry In Motion

These words seep out of the thin midnight and early morning cracks of time in my life. Every day these words release me. Hopefully they do something exciting for you as well.

Drunken roots

"I aint never drunk on the job never"
Said the swaying beer gutted regular at local pub.

I think.

"Guess you have never laid fence in Idaho in November,
Where it's mandatory,
At least for the 90% of us that wanted to stay warm
(And yes, the majority of warm bodies Mormonorman)"

"Guess you have never been a bartender in Montana,
Where it still is an insult if you don't throw down a shot
Bought by a regular."

"Probably you have never worked around beer or booze or
As those are positions that can result in a well wetted whistle"

Comedy is great, as; when you are funny-
They buy you the booze.
Then again, you are not so funny.

And I don't see the lonely child and brazenly drunken parents fund
Contributing too much booze to the 'Chore'
Of taking care of the kids.

They are waiting for the best high in their world
For you.
Put it down,
Get back to your roots and live before
You become a vegetable.
