The Drinker

The drinker stares
Across his pint
And into the abyss

He knows he's drowning 
And there's no escape
Resigned to his fate

How did it come to this?
A life traded in
For liquid shares

What brings a man
To constantly cave in
To his insatiable thirst?

Yet laughter from across the room
Reminds the drinker 
It wasn't always thus

He once had joy and hope
Before the addiction
Washed them away

Faces from the past
Flash before him
As he stares into space

He wonders if they're happy 
Now he has left
For the daily drudgery of this evil place
