You look askance because I'm drunk
your nose a-twitch; I stink like skunk
for days I've liquid-dined
no solids only wine
happily gorged on grog and gunk

Once scrounging on the streets, homeless
I now live life in blissful bliss
of bondage I am free
on one big drinking spree
which in itself spells happiness

With jeans and watch by Armani                
you, perfumed doll, though sober be 
to survival shackled
securely manacled
but guess who won the lottery?

To you, Free.  Sadly, our world is a judgemental one.  <3<3<3

    Good Tuesday Morning :) Being S/A's all our comments come in overnight from USA hey. Just stopping by to see if you have posted recently and came across this one-- I thought it very clever and so typical of our times. That being said, being a Capetonian.. I LOVE my wine. Great poem.. enjoyed it xx

    gosh, I sure would like to win a lottery!! Very interesting set of limericks, delysia. I wish you luck in the contest.

    Hmmmm Sadly yes but for a reason. Though we shouldn't consider ourselves better than someone with a dependency we have to be careful or we could get pulled into the same hole with them, and it's hell in there not to mention so expensive it can rob you of everything you own. Including your self respect. That's not freedom my love, that's total enslavement. Good job here . God Bless, JB

    Very witty ending to your limerick series, Delysia! I do hate to see people live life in a drunken state though. Guess if you win the lottery, you can afford to live anyway you choose. Unfortunately, DNA evidence HAS revealed that a great number of people executed for crimes were actually innocent. That's why I have problems with the death penalty. Had they been sentenced to life, they could have been released. Wishing you success in Francine's contest! Love, Carolyn
