The Retired Bloke

Not Again!

The banging of my head

As I lay here in my bed

Signals it was a good night

However this is despite 


Not really remembering 

The finer details surrounding

What got me to this point

I’m hoping I didn’t disappoint


My wife with my behaviour 

Toast and tea my saviour

When I poured into the house

Failing to be as quiet as a mouse


This was a not again night

Where next time I might

Show a little more self control

To drink a lot less my goal.

    OMG I don't miss the hangovers of yesterday. I've been sober many years now.
