Three Sheets to the Wind

Antigones Vow © Mobius Faitha

He had it all, rode so high
upon crest’s in the sea if life

Wife, kids, home, car
and, a job he hated.

a bottle took him to bed
or, wherever it was that
he fell.

Oh, yes, he fell
and kept on falling.

Time passed
that steady stream of full
and empty bottles became
his only friend

Lost his wife
kids, home and car

now, even
Shank’s pony will not
take him far
when he’s always
three sheets to the wind.
