Go Ahead, Take a Drink

Location

Go ahead, take a drink.

Wash your power down the sink,

Don't bother to stop,

and THINK.

Watch everything slip away in the blink

of an eye.

That's all it takes,

and then you've raised the stakes;

from loved ones, all you'll get

is a flurry of disappointed head shakes.

Reality will become as much of a stumbling mess

As you are as you tottle through the hallway, barely dressed.

Good luck with the rest of your day

You have thrown it all away today...

Today? Yes, today, and the rest of your days.

But no delay,

I mean it, I say,

Go ahead, take a drink.
