Poetic Interlude XXXVIII

I know that I’ve posted these particular poems before, Gentle Reader, but in light of last night, they seemed appropriate. Excuse me while I nurse my hangover and slip into a soupbowl of coffee. Happy Post-Solstice!

A Letter
Dear Doctor and Mrs. Wiggenbottom:
Thank you so much for the party!
I hope all your guests had their fun-
I know that young Julie DuBois did
When she bedded your underaged son.
The décor was perfectly charming,
Or it was until Randy arrived
(With his bevy of busty young beauties
That he pays to appear by his side).
I’m sorry that I broke your glasses,
And that vase that your Aunt sent from France,
And I’m sure Jim and I were such asses
When we tried to make Eleanor dance.
I know that your neighbours are vicious,
And threatened to call in the cops –
(It was Sue who burned holes in the carpet –
What can you expect from a sot?)
Now, you musn’t mind all the mess, dears,
Or that stranger passed out on the trunk.
Thanks for letting me sleep it off here, dears.
Kisses and love! Signed,
                                           The Drunks
 
A Love Song
Covered in glory –
A Primeval story
Of Alcohol, dirt, and of shame.
Hungover, quiet –
“Last night was a riot!”
She doesn’t remember his name.
The sun’s shining bright,
And the daughter of night
Has covered her sins up in beer.
No name means no fuss,
So what’s to discuss?
She’d been needing that lay for a year!
So stumble away
In the hard light of day:
The dawn indiscretions will cure.
Don’t worry yourself –
You’re the picture of health!
At this evening’s soiree you’ll be pure!

About Ty DeLyte

Madame DeLyte has suffered a grave disappointment - YET AGAIN - and still believes that freedom, beauty, and truth are what's valuable, rather than vulgar cash. He'd add love to that list - but, well, what can he say about love?
