      A Drunkard in Denial

      I am a drunkard in denial

      I don’t have no problem

      I’m doing fine

      I talk with my children and my woman

      So I don’t have no problem

      My children say daddy please don’t drink

      My woman say man please don’t drink

      But I drink anyway

      Cause I don’t have no problem

      My sister says drinking is not good for you

      It changes your whole personality

      You don’t need to drink

      But I still drink cause I don’t have no problem

      I flipped my car into the ditch a few weeks ago

      It was all over the news

      Car found in ditch no driver found

      I had crawled out and walked home

      Don’t know how I walked home

      Don’t know how my car got into the ditch

      Can’t remember nothing

      But I don’t have no problem

      Been drinking forty five years

      So why stop now

      I ain’t got no problem

      I drink when I want to drink

      If I don’t want to drink I don’t drink

      They say I’m an episodic alcoholic

      I can do with it or I can do without it

      I don’t have no problem

      After all, I practice harm reduction

      I pay my rent, buy my food, wash my clothes

      Even take a bath now and then

      So I ain’t got no problem

      What are you talking about

      I can’t go nowhere and have a drink in peace

      All my drinking buddies is dead

      But I ain’t got no problem

      Hell, it’s lonely without my drinking buddies

      But I ain’t got no problem

      I only drink sometimes when I’m happy or when I’m sad

      But I ain’t got no problem

      Or I drink when I get the writer’s block so I can get unblocked

      Ain’t got no problem

      Used to drink white port and lemon juice

      Then Silver Satin, Golden Spur

      Rainer Ale that Green Death

      Then moved up to Hennessey Separators

      Yeah, they separate yo mind from yo body

      They separate yo money from yo hand

      Watch out for them separators

      But I ain’t got no problem

      After 45 years of drinking

      Do I have a liver

      Do I have a kidney

      Oh, I want a transplant

      Will somebody give me a transplant

      Since I fucked my kidneys up drinking

      Will one of my children give me a kidney

      Maybe my woman will give me one

      She loves me she say

      Maybe one of my drinking buddies will share their kidney

      Like we shared that Night Trane and Cisco

      But I forgot, all my drinking buddies is dead

      I miss them so much

      Let me make a libation to them with this Henessey

      Ops, not too much on the ground now

      This shit is too expensive

      Let’s be real!

      I even started a theatre for drunks called Recovery Theatre

      I’m the drunkest one in the theatre

      The City tried to give me money for my theatre

      But I was too busy getting drunk to write the proposal

      But I ain’t got no problem

      Getting drunk was more important that writing for a $l00,000 grant

      To save my ass and other drunks

      But I ain’t got no problem

      Drunks lying all outside my theatre

      But I’m too drunk to let them in

      But I ain’t got no problem

      Will somebody help me?

      Greetings SoularFlarez!

      This poem brings to light the disease of alcoholism and the
      effects it really has on the individual going through this
      unhealthy phase of their life.

      When it is expressed the way this author portrays it, we all
      can say we probably knows someone who knows someone
      who has been or is going through this same scanario right now.

      Good to know you found the piece to be powerful.

      Much appreciation to you for checking out the poem.

      Stay Blessed!
