Words Not To Live By

By John Patrick Robbins

Words Not To Live By

I prefer to have strippers for breakfast.
And a side of little regrets and maybe a double shot of Jack Daniels for my coffee.

Do nothing until the sun sets, then make the bars as usual.
Make others laugh and a few cringe with some very inappropriate jokes.

Burn the candle at both ends and maybe burn a little something extra too.

Stagger home and rinse with a little hundred proof and probably forget to feed that dog.

But I'm sure he will enjoy whatever a splatter upon the floor.

As I pass out alone in hopes to not see another day.

Sharing my vices and if lucky that night, sharing my bed.

It's a cruel cycle I must repeat but I have to party for those less fortunate fools.
Who embrace the grind and know a wife and kids.

It's a sacrifice but I'm a selfless bastard.

Prosit my friends.

Goodness, what a exciting night life. DON'T think a ordinary person could keep up. Makes me jealous that I didn't do anything but go online last night. Keep up the good work.
