5:30 AM on a Monday
It doesn’t get much worse than this
Up all night partying for what I don’t know
Everyone is gone now I am alone with my beer
Inebriated and toxic I am a danger zone.
Dogs are sleeping and wife as gone long ago.
Just me and this computer and some lonely souls.
I have taken Ambien and lorizapam and nothing puts me down
It will probably take a sun to rise
To wipe the tears from my eyes.
I can hear The Stones singing
“Goodbye Ruby Tuesday”
From another room
But it’s only Monday.
I light another smoke and watch the bellowed rings
Cancer spelled with an O.
Take another sip of Heineken waiting for the buzz to start
Oh Jesus is this what a life if for? Help me find the top.
Once I reach the pinnacle then maybe I can stop.
