A Happy new Year!


A throbbing head wondering where you are

with slow thoughts you remember

it is New Years day everything looks bleak

this not being such a good start

how cold and damp where you had laid

lifting your head nerves frayed!


Glancing about there in the morning air

several others beside you 

an awful smell of booze and stale vomit

makes your stomach churn

rising with pain to your feet on wobbly legs

bottle in hand with a few dregs!


Swigging that down making you feel worse

focusing your tired blurry eyes

trying to rouse those prostrate on the ground

recognising some others no idea

a girl looked familiar then an awful flash back

had he proposed not the right tack!


Not certain who any of them here could be

on rubbery extremities they stood up

noticing it was a fly tip rubbish everywhere

was it near the last port of call

each still under the influence of all the drink

guiding them to the nearest taxi link!


Unable to remember anything of last night

as the frost began to bite

a strange red sky greeted the weary band

as they walked in the wasteland

welcoming in another bloody new year

longing for more spirits and beer!


Will it be A Happy 2018?
