Drink it in and taste it

Bottom of the Bottle

 

Poisonous nectar to be consumed

 

Men and women cherish it

 

Despite they can succumb to its charm

 

And suffer from what it truly is

 

A lethal drink hiding under a guise

 

It glistens in the light with a toothless smile

 

One of alluring happiness and dullness to pain

 

No matter what there are only three paths

 

One with controlled drinking

 

One with an unopened bottle

 

Or the one in a coffin
