Problems around every turn
Family headed for the urn
When your worries tell you to fail
When life feels a bit like hell
Open up the fridge
And grab yourself an ale!
Breaking thru the paralyzing fear
Taking in stride society's leer
All you've gotta do
Is down the next beer.
Like an infant needing the coddle
I find myself staring down
The barrel of an empty bottle.
An ode to drank
