High drunk on liquor, liquor of sun,
Liquor of sunset, liquor of stars,
Liquor of clouds, liquor of moon,
Liquor of moonrise, liquor of rain,
Liquor of dawn, liquor of frost,
Liquor of twilight, liquor of pain,
Liquor of work, liquor of rest,
Liquor of first light, liquor of cars,
Liquor of art, liquor of sex,
Liquor of sitting, walking, and talk,
Liquor of tv, texting and fun.
Drunk on the precept not to get drunk
This is a test that I’m likely to flunk.
