Alcoholic Unanimous Solemn Pledge: A Humorous Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


"Let there be light!",said almighty god

and beer got created smooth and "light"

with all drunk believers giving it the nod

once more delighted with our god's might.

We sober ones may call them losers

maybe just jealous about their highs

scared to enlist among happy boozers

our excuse being full of some cheap lies.

So, let those rivers flow of that blessed wine

that nectar from gods and goddesses alike

what's more noble goal than feeling fine

achieving that outlandish mood spike.

Those taking care of our national wellbeing

should be people with a "spirited" vision

as spirits guide them to easier agreeing

and no happy drunk causes division.

The more we're intoxicated the easier we follow

let our bottle stash remain our holy shrine

even with heads pickled and hollow

let us stick to our good wine.
