I'm Gonna Need a Transplant

A sip of whisky, a little nipsky-
for my liver this is risky!
Cirrhosis bound, by ultrasound,
but still I feel a little frisky

Does it matter, when to Death are shackled,
and we join earth's Kings and Queens?
Time, the force, we cannot battle-
I've seen it in my Dreams!

    Jack's poem that I just Tweeted has added near 20 reads in about 1 min. So here goes. I haven't looked at the numbers here but cross your fingers.

    Drink heaps of water and convince yourself that your flushing your liver just fine, and that'll save you for years. That's what I do anyway, so don't be telling me different! Due to our current arrangement I feel that I should tweet a link to all that you do. A little investigation lately shows that my links are likely to have a measurable effect on the number of reads that the linked poem gets. So what do ya think?

    Clever. My liver's not too far off as well...why the possessive on Kings and Queens? Soup mail turned on...btw.

    I don't know why my brain adds things that aren't needed and contrariwise, forgets to add words. I think the word, but forget to type it!

    Has there not been more than one King and Queen is earth's long history?
