    Alcohol you have been the fall of many through out history.
    People paying to discover you’re so called mystery.
    Alcohol there is no mystery to you, for you hold is misery.
    Diluting the spirit of the human race.
    Making a mockery of all who see your face.
    Packaging yourself in a beautiful case.
    Going down with a bitter taste.
    Taking the mind to a forbidden place.
    For where the mind goes the body follows.
    Allowing the soul to wallow in sin.
    Destroying generation, after generation;
    Kin, after kin.
    Giving false strength to the weak.
    Creating an illusion, only causing confusion.
    When will your deception end?

    For real,

    speak it dog, the firewater is no good,
    even though it is very prevalent in our neighborhood.
    You can't go to a party without seeing its stain
    and all the people doubled over, reeling from the pain.
    It has turned people into lovers overnight
    only to see them hide in the morning light.
    How much damage has been done by this liquor, I wonder,
    how many lives, careers, families it has taken under.
    Don't bend to the pressure, it indeed is very simple,
    resist it's draw, remember Your body is a Temple.


    Peace
