swimming on the royal reserve

Poem #41 from Small Town Kid

Back to Small Town Kid – Introduction


stewie shouldn’t go swimming
on hot evenings
with his belly full
of royal reserve port

it’s cheap by the flagon
but
it doesn’t aid
his buoyancy

there’ll be a day
when we don’t find him
floating
like we did last night

or when we don’t start
to look
quite soon enough

if the silly bugger
goes and drowns himself
we’ll all be in strife
with the law
and our parents

the whole damn town
