Chasing the Blues Away

Upon a bar stool perched am I
With a smiling tear - a tall frosty in hand
The memory of her- for I was such a fool
Having played a part in Medusa's stone cold play
Here’s to her freedom- that crazy demented witch
God forgive the man who’s next envenomated
The tears I cry or is it a sigh 
That helps me remove my tongue from my cheek
So I’ll order another, a toast I proclaim 
The witch is dead
Never again will I make such dire mistake
Long will I remember-perhaps forever
The wonderful sound of her slamming the door
So belly up boys, the drinks are on me
Cause I'm chasing the blues away

    This is a tongue-in-cheek piece. I hope you enjoy it. PS, It has nothing to do with my life- just a querky concept directed towards the contest
