Drunkeness- Poem

Drunkeness

By Ben Fetterman

I myself have never seen the appeal
Of the bottle,
And as such have never been drunk,
But with how many of my fellow students and friends
Get drunk regularly.
There must be some appeal I’m missing.
As they do this
Even though throughout history,
Literature and pop culture,
We can see many people who’s lives
Were destroyed by over indulgence
In that “wonderful” molecule
Ethanol.
From Noah who cursed his son Ham
To be the least of his kids,
As he had walked in and saw
Noah passed out drunk and naked,
To abusive drunks that proliferate novels,
To Princess Diana
Who was killed by a drunk driver.
And yet, despite this all,
Many people still find great appeal in
Drunkeness
