Why is he there

too wasted to think,

on a bed of concrete;

he needs one more drink.


Overnight in jail

his punishment be

found crawling the streets

on bended knee.


He feels like a fool

Warden’s shake their heads

Laying, embarrassed and unkempt

on a concrete bed.


He tossed and turned

‘till the new mourn

 face in his hands

cursed the day he was born.


Bail was posted

a fool took a chance

he’s a no good drunk 

can tell with one glance.


He’ll be back soon

on this concrete bed

 alcohol the culprit

he’ll wish he was dead.
