if a fool

looks in,

you cannot expect

a genius

to look out.

Poem:

.

he died
his brain was fried
an alcoholic of the worst ilk
he drank booze like it was milk

more than a few trips to the detox
the disease to him a confusing flummox
so many rehabs he couldn’t remember
to a more than few he was a charter member

every time he lied he’d give you a dime
it was always the truth, just at the wrong time
the homeless community knew him as a thief and beggar
the only friend he ever had was the local bootlegger
never knew where he was or where he was going
it depended on which way the wind was blowing

fired from every job, he never established a career
his bad habit was showing up smelling like beer
bad relationships, he had more than a few exes
everyone knew he was an avowed sexest

he drank booze like it was milk
an alcoholic of the worst ilk
his brain was fried
he died
