Having a Beer at Lunch
Being sober now many a year
seeing paths that were not very clear
my own problems were drunk
in spirits I was sunk
sobriety holds lists I keep near.
A good lesson I've learned over time
don't drink Tequila without the lime
or before your breakfast
each shot will be your last
your down before the afternoon climb.
Don't have random drinks throughout the day
listen in closely to what I say
some point you'll lose control
each drink will take it's toll
you'll wake up in a hospital stay.
Finally, don't have a beer at lunch
your work will not laugh, I have a hunch,
when your breath smells like brew,
"I've only had a few!"
last one standing in your drinking bunch.
