Witten 2005, for a friend who told me this.

The Sober Pen

A guy used to
Write quite often
When drinking
His popular demand;
But when his glass
Ran empty-
He staggered too
Much to stand...

Yes, he drank a lot
And ideas flew
From his pen;
But too much drinking
Is not good-
He mentions,
"Oh, what I did then!"

So now he doesn't
Touch the stuff
And ideas don't
Seem to land...
They don't visit
His sober mind-
He says, I don't
