And the editor says after rejecting my submitted poem
"gonna pass on this one but keep submitting. and why only one poem? send at least 3, man. write a poem about the bottle. nothing like a good i'm drunk poem. sure worked for Buk."
And I can’t argue that.
But my counter point is
I punch neither clock nor spouse nor canine and unless you’re signing my paycheck, you get what I give.
In total sincerity, most drunks worry less about stanzas and sonnets
than where the next round is coming from.
I’ve got the green for this one.
