MY GLASS IS ALWAYS HALF FULL

Folder: 
MEANDERTHAL MAN

Yukon Jack & a cigar

on a night

when I really should be

going to bed early

Well, what more can I say?

 

It’s a bit embarrassing

I’m supposed to be

a grown up now

no more Spiderman

or Super Friends

 

and no more delusions

of frathouse keg parties

with tequila quarters

I should be in bed

not sucking down whiskey

 

they say I should know better

but apparently I don’t

and I’ll see thru bloodshot eyes

and cringe at the slightest sound

above a whisper

 

but hey, Fucking A!

you can’t always be perfect,

clean shaven and neat

Once in awhile

you gotta rip it out your gut

 

consider it catharsis

consider it medicinal

You think I’m full of shit

but my spirit is soaring

and my glass is always half full
