Drinking a glass

of cheap cola

that tastes cloying sweet


the aftertaste will linger


I’m tired from 40 hours work

within a 3 day period


I’ll be glad to have

tomorrow off

I need a chance to recover


The gifts are really secondary



Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was only 20 on Christmas Eve '86 so don't judge me for drinking cola

I have drank only cola since 1993.

No alcohol has touched these lips except when gargling with mouthwash.
