Doesn’t Have To Be Today

If it was supposed to be a way of 
coping it failed to come up to speed
next day mess was apparent although
a good hangover wholly compensated

‘a bloke’s thing’ doesn’t explain why so 
many brain cells had to be wiped out of
existence – moreover bravado fell short
by one of the four six-packs available 

vaguely recall thinking analytically at 
tea time whether to complete the deed
or eat – my supper companion agreed
eating made more equitable sense 

we hadn’t done too bad as it were and 
if need arose we could finish the last
pack any time – it isn’t going to stray he
observed so it doesn’t have to be today
