you figure things out the hard way…
‘yes isn’t always the answer’
yes isn’t always the answer
i couldn’t figure out
what he meant
but it became clearer
after several shots of irish whiskey
look, sometimes you have to grow balls
and stick up for yourself
be a man and not some compliant pussy
that rolls over to your woman.
he suddenly got a text from his wife
and hurried home.
i poured whiskey down my throat
stumbled in at 4am
walked into walls
pissed in the sink
and caught holy hell.
