DRUNKARD’S PARADISE

Drunkard's Paradise

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Drunkard’s Paradise]

See the drunkard in a paradise of his own
A paradise in which nothing is known

A paradise where he trudges inside a bottle
Where he mumbles, fumbles and stumbles

A paradise where he wears his robe of shame
And paints in mud his family name

A paradise where his mother’s heart is rent apart
And his father loathes him like pungent fart

A paradise where he is crowned Eyesore before men
And Tiara of despair to his children

A paradise where vengeful maladies stalk his health
And he offers a handshake to uninvited death

See the drunkard in a paradise of his own
A paradise in which nothing is known
