He was drunk
Three large glasses of Jim Beam
Had ensured that
… and they were large glasses.

It didn’t help of course
No demons were driven out
Or away.
The drinking had become a bad habit.

He used to worry
About his liver
His general health.

Now it is only her
His one, his lover
His companion, his friend.
She has yet another hurdle to climb.

When will enough be enough
It would seem that the answer is – never!
