I Ere I sink upon the pillows for a
night of calm repose I consume a
brace of billows where the quiet
river flows. And this water from
the river doesn’t set me back a dime;
no remorse does it deliver, so I drink
it all the time. In my bed I’m sanely
> drowsing till the rise of morning's
sun, while my friend is out carousing
where the bootleg liquors run. In
the morning I am chipper, fit to whip
the largest snake, and I straightway
drink a dipper of fresh water from
the lake. Now at last my friend is
waking, after wassail at the inn; all
his bones and joints are aching and
he reeks of poisoned gin. In his
mouth a taste corroding makes him
shudder in his bed. and the fireworks
are exploding in his sick and weary
head. All his muscles are a-tremble,
and his nerves are sorely tried, and
his bloodshot eyes resemble eggs
which have been badly fried. He is
groaning in self-pity, and he sighs,
in accents grim, that in all our love
ly city there’s no fool to rank with
him. This is what a man is buying
when he spends his hard-earned
plunks where the scofflaws’ corks
are flying and the floor is strewn
with drunks. Brimming flagons
bring but sorrow, they provide a
foolish game; revelry, and the .
morrow, with its misery and shame.
When I see the souse I’m grateful '
that I drink from brook and pond, ,
that I wish no box or crate full of
the bottled stuff in bond. All the <
deadly beakers scorning, I drink
blithely from the mere, and I wake 4
up in the morning feeling like a i
