A bar too far…

Just hang out with her
and you’ll know why I call her
“A bar too far”

Happy With What You Have

Though he had to stand,
And his favorite beer was gone.
No complaints escaped.

Right Back At You

Isn’t that the guy
That sat alone at the bar
Every day this week

This Ain’t Haiku: Beer Run – An Epic Tale

While drinking at home late last night
I had me a terrible fright
To the fridge I did go
And I suffered a blow
The only thing there was called Lite

My head quickly started to spin
What a pickle I found I was in
I suppose I could find
Something else for my mind
Perhaps vodka or what about gin?

I ran to my home bar so fast
And what I found left me aghast
If only I’d known
That my whole stock was blown
Oh, the size of my problem was vast

Response to Optimism

She left real quickly
Lost at the bar, I ponder
Barkeep, suggestions?

It’s five o’clock somewhere…

Five o’clock beckons
Drawn by cheap food and cold beer
I head to the bar.
