Dead Drunk and Pickled

From the dark vaults of Nottinghamshire's rich history Full of intrigue folklaw and mystery Comes a rather gruesome tale About a unlucky drunkard who drank too much ale While frequenting a local drinking inn In a drunken stopper The man fell down the stairs And landed head first into a barrel that he fell in And drowned. What a way to go Was it ale or gin we may never know Proof that drink kills A grizzly tale To give you a chill. Peter Dome. copyright.2015. July
