Horny, Broke, and Needing a Drink (A Philosophy)

Thomas W Case

Booze and pussy are
tragedies of Greek
Take a man with
potential and then
give him a steady
dose of either (or both)
withdraw it,
and watch him

It’s not the sex act
the alcohol its self,
it’s the effect they
produce on
one’s psyche.
We will always
equate that which we
feel emotionally
with absolute

If one has given
himself completely
(with abandon)
to either pursuit,
when removed,
there will be
a vacuum
a gaping
hole that without an
act from the
will never be

    Addictions to anything can be mighty powerful. Can be hell to break. A tragedy indeed for those sucked in. A powerful write and a lesson as well.
