Bartender! One For The Road

Critically conflicted! the frailty in those fragile fragmented memories,
this adhesive affliction, an admonished addiction lacking redemption.
Delirious! dismal distill depression, the broken dreams from deception,
the chaos of emotions, a jaw of life extraction read the news caption.

Overdose! those on the rocks overindulgence! convulsive explosions,
oh twisted bodies of wrecked life’s the blood stains wait! justice is late.
The trembling tolerance text these toxic temperatures of public resent,
hospitalization! before those pending consequences and confrontations.

Empty concern confusion! the compulsion criminal complaints is an illusion,
what crackdown on prevention, sobriety checkpoints are more superstition?
For those who work among the mangled metal and broken shards of glass,
covering the dead broken bodies is part of the task, how long will it last.

I'm a father, friend, and a family man, I believe in right and wrong, I understand the value of standing on your own. I have an iron will with a poet's heart, a belief in God is where it starts.
