And once again

Posted by Michael Foley on May 8, 2015 at 20:58 0 Comments

He can see him inside his glass of beer,

Jumping summer salts and laughing,

From here on in anything can happen,

The joker has him and nothing can stop him.

Sometimes he can go for weeks on end,

And behave just like everyone else,

Then out of the blue he can appear from nowhere,

And drag him down into the depths.


One drink from the glass with the laughing dancer,

And nothing on earth can stop this…
