See what drinking gin from the tub can get you...?


Bathtub Gin... 


 


Its not so much I can’t think of anything to write,


But I can’t seem to write anything I can think of,


Cannot can I get it down on paper,


Nothing does come out; unable am I to see the light,


Afraid if I do put it down it may come out as a fright,


Better am I to remain as unusually lip tight…


 


Propagating with dissemination,


My skills for explanative conversation,


Are hereupon called by me for termination,


I do so with much, though reserved trepidation,


Do I make any sense with this herein communication…?


 


Passed over was I for brains,


At least that is what I think when I do take great pains,


To write something of worth, breaking my internal chains,


For what I do say within this short treatise, must you sustain…


 


Is this after all a treatise or formal exposition?


I think I do come loaded for bear with non-verbal ammunition,


When in reality I do seem to find of myself,


I am no more than a boring politician,


Stating the obvious while trying to refrain from repetitive repetition…


 


As always I do ask, have I made any sense herein?


Or should I go back to drinking my bathtub gin?


Sitting on the toilet with my cup in my hand,


Playing for all the world to hear  on my one handed violin…

"Better am I to remain as unusually lip tight…"

Ah, EM, leave it to you to redefine "lip tight"... then you tackle big words to rhyme and rhyme and again, rhyme with toe-tapping meter and rhyme.

Actually, beer is better in the bathtub... kinda like a bubble bath. (grin) katy xox

Well if I had drank some bathtub gin I would have fallen in and drowned but I reckon that there would have been a smile on my face. hic.
