Just sitting around


I’m just sitting around

Garth Brooks singing

about friends in low places

he could be singing about me

the beer was cold before

now it’s the temperature

of mother milk


I’m just sitting around

the evening creeping up on me

quietly, stealthy

just like death

I don’t care

there is neither

fright nor sorrow


I’m just sitting around


what for I don’t know

I’m too young to die

too old to live

but not too old or too young

to get another beer

      Thanks Andy, and you are always welcome to drink one here. Or maybe I open up another one and drink it for you!

          Thanks Dave, I have to admit though I am more of a wine than a beer drinker.

          Drinking is thirsty work Fred. The bottled ale I drink tastes better at room temperature, especially in these cold winter days of U.K.
          Bring on the sunshine when golden beers will line my fridge door and we may be allowed the freedom to mingle once again.

            Thanks d a, it really is work, isn't it? Growing up in Switzerland I usually drank slightly cold beer, now it cannot be cold enough. But don't forget, it's pretty hot here!
