Red Wine for Fun/ Whisky for Pain ~ Rob Walker

Red wine is for fun.
No doubt, no doubt.
Red wine is bursting and giddy.
It blossoms with excess.

It’s for the celebration,
And the deep conversation,
To bloom like an expanding bubble.
To take the weight off your feet,
like a snug dog in the stomach.

And whisky is for pain.
You pour it on wounds.
Spiky on the tongue which’ll jut like a live-wire.

Knock it back!

Knock it back!

Like a crack in the jaw.
Then let it singe down like fire,
And let it burn,
Burn like the hate you have, for you.
Let it rot there like evil sown in the stomach.
Let it rot you fucker.
