AND THE ASSIGNMENT IS: to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles, because today marks the halfway point of NaPoWriMo’s 30-day sprint.
Oh, what was it I was thinkin’? Stayin’ out all night a’drinkin’
With the boys back from my Army days;
Had a little bit of trouble — couldn’t drive, was seein’ double
After Tequila, it all was in a haze.
Had some gin and slammed some whiskey — was feeling just a little frisky
(Around then, I think it was I lost my phone);
Tried some Sherry and some Brandy — ’til the barman sounded scary:
“Take your paws off my girls and git your own!”
