This Alcoholism is Scandalous
moe1960

My world leans on me

I sag with the world around it

As seems to droop

Using alcohol as a torchlight

Procession marching down my throat

What is less helpful as a way out of difficulty?

It fastens and perpetuates my trouble

Which occasioned it,

And increases evil of the situation.

At all costs, then, I ought to reduce the sway of my mood

I scout it within myself and others

And never show its tolerance.

Happiness is yet to be found

When this world around mixes misery sounds

The attitude of unhappiness is not only painful

Its mean and ugly

What can be more base and unworthy than the mumping mood

My drunkenness is a temporary suicide

Drinking into nothing but voluntary madness

Living in my world desiring sobriety

This alcoholism is scandalous

Taking me out of society

Then out of the world I live in

The sway of alcohol lies over me

Due to its power to stimulate the mystical faculties

One drink to many

A thousand is never enough

The enemy pours into my mouth

Steels my brain

Transforms myself into a beast

Bottomless pit such influence to terrorizing

Allowing my thirst to think

Never filling that psychological gap

A sudden violent jolt
