Feeble excuses…

 

Deep sleep
Chased away by early sunshine
That did nothing
To stop the hammering
In my sometimes battered
Brain.
Caused by Jim Beam
Correction!
By my having an arrangement
With Jim Beam.
I enjoyed his company
He didn’t complain.
How we convince ourselves
That it will help us
Think!
Not after the third one.
All thought disappears
And what the hell!
My opus will have to wait
Another day.
Such is the price we pay.
