Vicious Circle

He drank another pint of beer,
And saw the shadows disappear;
The answers to his problems clear,
He had no fear, he had no fear.

He felt so ill when morning came,
And stayed in bed, alone and lame,
He knew he had the beer to blame,
When no one came, when no one came.

For Kim’s Monotetra contest

    Revisiting this one. I think you did a great job with monotetra. Thanks for seeing many of my latest posts. I know you stay away for a bit and then you have so much to catch up on when you come here. So I appreciate the time you take to see my poetry. Luv, Andrea
