Hanukkah Hangover...and I'm not even Jewish!

It must have been six months
since I’ve suffered this way…
This isn’t the image
I’d like to portray

The ‘all too familiar’…
vein-ridden eyes
are my souvenir
for my sobriety’s demise

My brain should be crowded

with quick witted thoughts,
but a hazed , cloudy mind
is all that I brought

My wallet is empty

but I chose not to fret…
that bottle of SoCo
looked like my best bet.

Jamie and Chad had a couple of drinks
But it was me who sure polished the most
After that, what I drank, I shudder to think,
But again I raised my glass to toast:

“Here’s to the night’s I forget all my worries
And have a few drinks with my friends….

I sure can’t afford to go out to the bar,
But tonight, what the hell, I’ll pretend”
