Just One More

Just one more bar of chocolate
It can't do any harm
But you're 16 stone and rising
Soon you'll belong on a farm

Another six quid in the machine
For the latest packet of fags
No ice cream for the kids today
But at least they're not in rags

Six hours on the net already
But sleep can wait for now
If the wife ever sees my internet history
There will be one hell of a row

Just one more million for the CEO
Add it to the pile
Looking down from his ivory tower
As the dole queue stretches for a mile

Another bloody corpse
It's like the set from Thriller
Just wait till the cops find
The basement of this serial killer

Six visits to the hospital already
Your luck will surely run out
How often can you overdose
Before the lights go out?

Addiction knows no boundaries
And we all have a cross to bear
So don't be so judgmental
It simply isn't fair

    I despise people who judge. Yes, we all have our crosses to bear. An awesome write. Much in every verse. Love, Shar

    Wow...this poem speaks volumns on overcoming the valleys of addiction...all kinds of addiction. You are one can pass judgement on another...who knows what they have dealt with in life. Great writing!..~Carrie
