A little too much beer


I picked five words and attempted to turn them into a poem:

Stagger, indiscriminate, accidental, stale, gloomy


Staggering down the lane,

The gloomy night,

The air stale,

So thick it takes your breath away,

Swerving and falling,

Walking into people,

Lamppost and things accidental,

Indiscriminate of creed, sex or colour,

As you cling to the walls and fences,

Hitting the pavement with your head,

Losing a shoe as you try not to fall again,

Maybe I should have stayed for another beer,

Oh please be careful my dear,

As I cling to your hand.



I’m sorry I’m writing less,

I’m going to tell you why,

You see I have a lot on my mind,

A job you see, I’m struggling to find,

Fear of unworthy undefined,

Things seem unclear,

People a blur,

Faceless as are millions,

Fighting the great fight,

To be seen.
