Poetry Day: Drink With Me

(I did quite a few humorous drinking poems.  Probably because I had a better tolerance back then.  These days, I don’t drink much.  Body doesn’t really like it and my anxiety issues get amplified, so it’s best for me to highly limit them.  Maybe I’ll have a glass of whiskey after a rough week when I don’t have my son.  Still, it’s fun to write poetry about it.)

On simple days
I have a beer
Whatever brand on sale

On hottest days
I have lemonade
Mostly made of rum

On days of chill
I suck down whiskey
To feel the phantom burn

On high class days
I drink mojitos
Because I like to say the word

On party days
I drink tequila
Straight without a care

On reminiscing days
I drink my vodka
The liquor of my heart

On days that I forget
I drink a shot of Jager
Then remember my dislike

On anniversary days
I settle for a wine
Though my palette has no sense

On St. Patrick’s day
I drink a Guinness
With a shot inside

On rarest days
I get my mead
Drinking like a glutton

On any day
I have a drink
So join me if you wish

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
