Steady As He Goes Down

Steady As He Goes Down

Take a swig to settle your nerves
Calm in a flask
Empty promise in the form of J.D and Turkey wild
Sleep like a baby. Shake like a leaf
Infant without mother’s milk, feeding not to miss
For thirst is need and need is met at the bottom of the aqua flask.
Why are you ill? Why they ask. . .
Breath of whiskey, putrid mask
Descends upon me like a mask. Steady As He Goes Down
