I have

very often been

that drunk idiot

standing on the platform

waiting for the train

yet how soon I forget

when I am sober

and some other schmuck

is portraying the role


I can do no more

than shake my head

and chuckle

at the irony

I will surely refrain

from the word hypocrisy

in regards

to my own behavior



Author's Notes/Comments: 

found written on an index card.  And I have a whole pile of index cards with notes and pomes written on them to sort through.  Guessing the dates should be fun.  This one I would think is probably early 90's.
