Alcohol, cunning baffling powerful

Anticipation for that next drink, such a pull

Even though the negative consequences are dire

More alcohol is poured on, fueling the fire

    Just happened to be scrolling and my eye caught your title, "Nonsense", Allen.. Great job... It seems as though alcohol consumption is simply out of control and the negative consequence of too much drinking doesn't's sad when we are supposed to be "in control". Thanks for sharing. Always, Annalise
