Deadly Drinking Games

Broken heart Deadly Drinking Ganes

There are really no winners when it comes to booze
Even when you think you are winning
You lose
Your tolerance increases
And you become proud
You could drink anyone under the table
Announcing it loud

We’re celebrated for being able to hold our liquor
But the reality is it will just kill us quicker

We drink to mark every occasion it seems
It’s a measure of success that we toast to our dreams

All in good fun? or Deadly Drinking Games?

Champagne flows at weddings, birthdays, even sometimes a first date
Only the finest booze of course
It can’t wait
It’s even a guest at the funeral of a mate

I remember a fantastic young guy
We went out drinking
Boozy nights flying by
Hangovers the next day
Never feeling ok
He never realised the alcohol lie

Until it was too late to try
I saw him in the hospital room
Surrounded by depression and hopelessness too
He didn’t look like a winner then
His eyes were clouded
His life was spent

When he died
This charming, funny friend of mine
The irony is I toasted him with wine
I wish I’d just known better at that time 😢

With booze there truly are no winners
Better to be an AF beginner

Dedicated to my friend Tim, I miss your cheeky humour, sarcasm and wit ❤
