    I got a whale of a tale
    To my chagrin
    A good strong ale
    Is where it all began

    Alcohol abuse at home
    Ruled the roost
    Suffering alone
    An empty glass was cute

    Bar fly fights
    Attended school polite
    Nutty professors
    Do their thing at night

    A shell shocked dropout
    Schooled on ice
    His heartbreak hotel
    None too nice...

    Throttled by the bottle
    With my life to live
    I wanted to be better
    Not this broken kid

    That nasty vicious cycles
    Can destroy one's life
    Self destructive lessons
    Are the stuff so rife

    Pain upon pain
    Sending no releif
    A thirst insane
    Letting havoc wreak

    Do me one better
    Than 100 proof
    Love yourself and others
    Under sober roofs

    Such true words spoken poet, there's often a genetic component to this, and it doesn't help seeing those who are supposed to examples, plastered most of the time. I hear you poet.

    ...your work is always
    full of color and imagination
    but packed full of powerfull
    messages on serious
    social issues...
