Worst Morning After

Stop breathing so loud before I smother you dead.
Please go make coffee ... don't touch my head.
Jose Cuervo last night was my friend
but that relationship now must end.
No more tequila, no more Karaoke.
I can't seem to speak, my voice is all croaky.
Last night was a blast, on the table I danced.
I drank and I flirted and generally romanced
everyone in the bar , they were all friends of mine.
At least that was the consensus until closing time.
I danced my way home on wobbly legs.
Now my poor head it begs and it begs
"Don't do it again, behave and be good.
No more tequila". If only I could
go back once again to last night.
I think I would just have ordered a Sprite.

for Susan's "Worst Morning After" contest

    From seeing the previous comments, I see you won in somebody's contest with this entry. You had a better morning after than the passengers of the SS Poseidon. They had to fight their way to the bottom of the ship.

    Very creative, funny and entertaining, my friend. But, who are you kidding? We never learn - because as bad as the morning after is, it is the night before that begs for more.
