ALCOHOL

By William Dutcher, Army

Writing Type: Poem

Alcohol is a product of amazing versatility.
It will remove the stains from designer clothes.
It will also remove the clothes off your back.

If by chance it is used in sufficient quantity,
Alcohol will remove furniture from the home, rugs from the floor, food from the table, lining from the stomach, vision from the eyes,
And judgment from the mind.

Alcohol will also remove good reputations, good jobs, good friends, happiness from children’s hearts, sanity, freedom, spouses, relationships, love,
And man’s ability to live with his fellow beings.

It will also remove monetary assets, personal goals, brain cells and the ability to think clearly.

The bottom line is that as a remover of things, Alcohol has no equal, is not prejudiced on whom it chooses to inflict its effects. The ultimate goal is to remove as fast and as much as it can, even to the point of removing the thing we all cherish -- which is life itself.
