week 123 ~ knee deep in a martini

with 24 comments

knee deep in a martini
it’s going to be a long night
no one would ever blame me

to escape like Houdini
so many demons to fight
knee deep in a martini

I know it might sound cheesy
but I’ve done lots of things right
no one would ever blame me

though sometimes it’s hard to see
the upside around midnight
knee deep in a martini

waiting for recovery
from my now pitiful plight
no one would ever blame me

and drinking helps for really
nothing’s better in hindsight
knee deep in a martini
no one would ever blame me

    • Thanks, Charles! Reflection is often all we have to add interest to the dirty landscape of this winter.

  3. We all need to be knee deep in a martini at times. “Drinking helps for really” its funny because its true. Really liked it.

  4. Nicely done, but I fear it will give me a hangover. I won’t blame you.

  6. We are our own worse critics, sometimes not seeing the accomplishments performed. I can feel you! That is the reason i write, to get through life and not do something i may regret! Rock on!

  7. I have had more than my share of martinis at times. We have all been there. Then we get up and move on. Well done.
