The Role of Vices

May 18, 2010

Drink these: you’ll feel calmer, for a time,

Smoke these, you’ll feel sedated, for a time.

In the end, all we have is time,

After all.

~

Drink too much? Smoke to much?

You may lose your way,

like Icarus, who couldn’t say “when”.

He heard the words – but did it anyway.

~

So take care, be good, one drop and one puff,

But know when is when, and enough is enough,

We love you dearly, we know you are tough,

Pardon me, I need to cough.
