LIQUID LUNCH: Blues Inspired Poetry by Stephen Bess

One Shot


Gimme one shot of liquor
to chase dis beer
just one shot of liquor
to chase dis beer
gimme two more shots
and I’ll run all dese’ folks outa here
Makes no difference to me if it’s scotch or rum
Makes no difference to me if it’s scotch or rum
gimme two mo’ shots and my head is sho’ to be numb
I figure it’ll take some of the sting off that mighty blow
I got waitin’ on me at home
when I walk through that front do’
