Michael Edwards






Please don’t tempt me

with a glass half empty

but if you should do so

as everyone here knows

it’s easier to sup

(although not to top up)

if the half at the bottom is at the top.

    I would still rather have a full glass Michael - mines a Rioja if you're offering.

    Oh lol good write and pic M. There's similar in a Laurel & Hardy clip. They have one drink between them. They agree to drink half each. Laurel drinks it all, then says 'My half was on the bottom!'

      He should have drunk it upside down.

      Thats arse about face.

      Madam, may i top your bottom up?

      Gladys, he topped my bottom.

      Bottoms up! Make mine a Guiness. Beautiful drawing. Love the comedy of your poem. Whether half-full or half-empty I'll drink it. Next round, please! - Phil A.
