Thursday, July 24, 2008: On the Street..... Somewhere Around Hoxton, London

If only it would be enough
To sit and sip and alternate
Between the beer can and the coffee cup
And switch, like that, from drunk to wide awake.

I met a man who could consume
Twelve pints with no effects at all
Until, at last, he stood. No one’s immune
To what’s wolfed down (i.e. alcohol).

  1. The subtle rhymes reinforce well the humor in these verses, very much like Wendy Cope.
