The Road to Hell

Tiny bubbles
Briskly - briefly
Boost lemon twist
Thro' gin and tonic
Before depressing it
To depths of the glass

Hypnotic compelling spell
Beckons from the road to hell

One sip - divine communion
Old friends enjoy reunion
Till blind night slips past
And oblivion o'ertakes at last

Despair from empty goblet flows
As dawn caresses dewy rose
The world was once within his grasp
He reaches for a hand to clasp
