Last Call

Empty bottles and myself have much in common and little to share. 
We stand as statues and are better thrown away than collecting dust .

The party is over and another will be left to clean up after this mess I leave behind .

I can imagine them cussing me as they survey the wreckage wondering how someone could live as I have .

Judging me never knowing my truths .
I wonder will they question why I never left any scraps of paper behind.

Was I not a writer ?
Or was it just a excuse to sit on my ass and drink ?

Truth is when I go,  I take my files all kept within my head .
And in all truth I never needed a excuse to drink .

Live it up while you can cause we are all headed towards  closing time eventually .
