A twist on the traditional "he's fishing at the lake getting drunk again" I'm not standing for it!
Drinking When He's At The Lake
I ask him gently where he's been
he looks and says
"flishing latta lake" then he grins
Fish, potatoes, carrots and greens
he leans in close
"dis ta besh flish I never seen"
Thank yous said- upstairs he goes
he turns and says
"yousta besh wifes aman could chose"
Boots are pulled off,socks,shirt,then pants
I lean in close
"yousta besh bet aghirl could chance"
I climb in bed, fold hands and pray-
"please help Me, stop
drinking,when he's down at the lake!"
