Billy Carter Beer

Billy Carter was a sluggard I hear

   His kinfolk he did not always endear

      He embarrassed his brother

         And mortified his mother

            He cared not one whit as he nursed his beer!

    Maybe nothing matters when you are sipping a great beer; brothers and mothers might well fade in importance when liquid delirium is trickling down one's throat. BTW, is this the presidents' brother? Teehee! :)

    I never tried the stuff. It wasn't very long after it hit the stores around here that it was no longer available. Those who tried it said I wasn't missing anything. Good poem as usual Bob.

    Beer makes me burp. On a hot summer slurp. The first one goes fast. Wasn't meant to last. I knew a man who liked a beer float. Don't look at me, I'm just making a note. God rest his soul, he died of diabete's. I guess he should of just eaten his wheaties.
