So Drunk
Author: Mere


I'm so drunk I can't feel my spine,
I don't hate the coolers, I just hate the wine,
I drink when I wanna get away for a while,
So I don't have to fake it and sit back and smile.

I need something hard, something not quite so smooth,
I'm needing some vodka, so it's harder to move,
Maybe some rum, but it has to be right,
If it isn't, I'll flip and start up a fight.

Tequila's good also, but I think it's kinda rough,
So I'll drink some more vodka, so it won't be as tough,
I think I want some Smirnoff, or maybe some Mike's,
Maybe some beer, or maybe some Spike's.

I need something easy, something I'll agree on,
So all my friends will laugh, as I piss on the lawn,
Voodoo Juice is good too, it's very very straight,
It never came from a bottle, and isn't from a crate.

Mere that was cool...well written...funny little poem...
but ya know that bottle doesn't help,
all it does if make you have to watch your step..
and then when your done,
you feel like a bum...
oh what a feeling you get in the morning,
when you throw it up, without warning...
cool poem Mere

I never have puked, I've never had a hangover I've never been sick. It's weird though.

good writing

Your writing is good .The idea that booze doesn't affect you is good for you but others see what it does.

I Like It!

I really like your poem. it is very true. But, I do have to say that I don't drink to get away from things but, I did drink just for fun! Now, I look back on it and I realize thatt none of it was worth it!!!! For Reals!

Reminds me of my "short-timer" party"

I never got into alcohol, drugs or smoke, except when I was due to be released from the Army in 11 days. (end of my term) We had a party and I got soused so bad that it was 3 days before I got straightened out. I never actually got sick though. It took some effort to fight it.

What a reminder

This is what made me quit drinking since 1982. Got suckered into drinking very strong mai-ty's. Everyone left our table & got suckered into paying the bill for everyone. Then barfed outside the front door of the bar and all week-end with my head in the toilet. "I promise God,while my head still inside the toilet, I will never touch another drop again". I've kept that promise till now. So the story goes, it was a good thing, that this happened to me. Nice poem Mere, thanks!
