Handy guide to overdrinking

I don’t often include poetry in this blog but here’s a little rhyme from the time of prohibition in the US.

Teetotal lay from America

First puff

sick enough

First beer

Feels queer

First whisky

Feels frisky

First rum

Very glum

Brandy smash

Mental crash

All combined

Shattered mind.

All done

Hearse for one.
