There was a young alcoholic
Who drunk amounts of wine diabolic
She gulped like a fish must
All that was delicious
In a maddening drink induced frolic
And finding such liquor essential
Became the defining credential
As a form she composed
To join up with those
Recalling intoxicated woe quite sequential
How can you expect to remain anonymous?
When you drink the sum of all of us?
They asked as she recited
How her life wine had blighted
In lectures so stern and most sonorous
And that she was truly addicted
Was what they had surely predicted
As she left they would wait
Watch her try to walk straight
She could not; and was deeply afflicted
Then advanced liver disease ubiquitous
Cancer, cruel and carnivorous
She clutched the glass at her bedside -
Felt the agony subside
And for this her last breath was mellifluous.
