    some say we should keep personal remorse from the
    poem,
    stay abstract, and there is some reason in this,
    but jezus;
    twelve poems gone and I don't keep carbons and you have
    my
    paintings too, my best ones; its stifling:
    are you trying to crush me out like the rest of them?
    why didn't you take my money? they usually do
    from the sleeping drunken pants sick in the corner.
    next time take my left arm or a fifty
    but not my poems:
    I'm not Shakespeare
    but sometime simply
    there won't be any more, abstract or otherwise;
    there'll always be mony and whores and drunkards
    down to the last bomb,
    but as God said,
    crossing his legs,
    I see where I have made plenty of poets
    but not so very much
    poetry.

    Charles Bukowski

    Our lager
    Which art in barrells
    Hallowed be thy drink
    Thy will be drunk
    I will be drunk
    At home as in the tavern
    Give us this day our foamy head
    And forgive us our spillages
    As we forgive those who spill
    Against us
    And lead us not into incarceration
    But deliver us from hangovers
    For thine is the beer
    The bitter and the lager
    Forever and ever
    Barmen

    Skizo's beer poem reminded me of this...

    The piano has been drinking
    My necktie's asleep
    The combo went back to New York, and left me all alone
    The jukebox has to take a leak
    Have you noticed that the carpet needs a haircut?
    And the spotlight looks just like a prison break
    And the telephone's out of cigarettes
    As usual the balcony's on the make
    And the piano has been drinking, heavily
    The piano has been drinking
    And he's on the hard stuff tonight

    The piano has been drinking
    And you can't find your waitress
    Even with the Geiger counter
    And I guarantee you that she will hate you
    From the bottom of her glass
    And all of your friends remind you
    That you just can't get served without her
    The piano has been drinking

    The piano has been drinking
    And the lightman's blind in one eye
    And he can't see out of the other
    And the piano-tuner's got a hearing aid
    And he showed up with his mother
    And the piano has been drinking
    Without fear of contradiction I say
    The piano has been drinking

    Our Father who art in Gramarry
    Hallowed by thy glass
    Thy kingdom come, thy will be done
    On Earth as it is in the lounges
    Give us this day our daily splash
    Forgive us our hangovers
    As we forgive all those who continue to hangover against us
    And lead us not into temptation
    But deliver from evil and someone give us all ride home

    Because the piano has been drinking
    And he's your friend not mine
    Because the piano has been drinking
    And he's not my responsibility

    The bouncer is this Sumo wrestler
    Kinda cream puff casper milk toast
    And the owner is just a mental midget
    With the I.Q. of a fencepost
    I'm going down, hang onto me, I'm going down
    Watch me skate across an acre of linoleum
    I know I can do it, I'm in total control
    And the piano has been drinking
    And he's embarrassing me
    The piano has been drinking, he raided his mini bar

    The piano has been drinking
    And the bar stools are all on fire
    And all the newspapers were just fooling
    And the ash-trays have retired
    And I've got a feeling that the piano has been drinking
    It's just a hunch
    The piano has been drinking and he's going to lose his lunch
    And the piano has been drinking
    Not me, not me, The piano has been drinking not me.

    Tom Waits.

    I was in a bar once and there was this boring personalityless tosser who had a T-shirt with that on titled 'The Lads' Prayer'. He looked like he'd never had sex or a decent drink in his life.

    He looked like a nerd trying to be an unpopular, unoriginal, unfunny stereotype.
