  • Monday Moaning Blues.

    Breakfast for hearts less championed
    Just a cigarette.... some beer,
    the hair of a pit bulls.... that bit me
    can't seem to find a way that's clear.

    Used to wake up to sweet kisses,
    and a breakfast of delight
    but now I chase the wee hours,
    hugging drinks that don't hold tight.

    Monday Moaning blues have come to call
    and my love's done caught a train....
    to a place where I'm not welcomed
    cause I'd only bring her pain,
    I had my shots of honeyed lips,
    far too quickly they fell drained,
    so now I'm subbing shots of whiskey
    just to pickle what remains.

    Daily lunch at greasy fast foods,
    full of calories and salt,
    till my body starts to tremor
    like that San Adrea fault.
    then it's off to find a barroom
    for commiserating with
    a barkeep who has "Heard it all."
    bringing drinks to drown love's myth.

    Lately I've been skipping dinner
    there's no candlelit romance
    love has left me growing thinner,
    tightening belts on baggy pants.

    If I waste away to nothing
    then there's nothing left to waste,
    alcohol brings my solutions
    to the pain I must erase.

    Monday moaning blues have come to call

    far too quickly they fell drained
    now I'm subbing shots of whiskey
    just to pickle what remains.
