Persona Undecided

Whom shall I be today?
I've not the slightest clue
A child with his toys to play,
Or someone else--brand new?

A brat to never be forgiven:
To never see the sights of Heaven;
Never join my Christian brethren?
Oh, I pray it isn't true!

You, kindly nurse, my lips, please moisten
With whisky rye; I've picked my poison

    I know this is supposed to be a sad read but I see a funny side to it. Maybe I need a doctor? Now I set me down to dine a // a plate o' tates; a tot o' wine // you have the tates; I'll have the tot // not near enough; I need a bot // but please not wine and neither tea // could you spare some rye whiskey?

    Thanks, Richard. You know me: ol' sad sack and "Gloomy Gus" lol. I can poke fun at myself because I know the sense of melancholy permeates many of my pieces. I appreciate the feedback; hope you are well :)
