~whiskey man~

http://wordwulf.com/blog ~whiskey man~so when all the ladies passed~they could kiss his whiskey ass~

~we began to keep a book of days~
~to mark our shadow danse~
~it is a book become older~
~than all our years combined~
~the whiskey man was handed to me~
~by a friend from prison~
~carved of soft wood~
~by hard hands in a steel cage~
~I discovered his spirit~
~& wrote it down in the book whose name was:

~well of souls~

~there are ghosts down there~
~a host of green angels~
~order us to slay our naked fish men,~
~haul them up to be eaten~
~flesh borne to our table & body complete~

~a crack appears in the withering wall~
~bear witness a frail danse of devils~
~we are thus found seeking & wont to become~
~a panting penumbra~
~pale shadow green angel~
~mermaids naked fish men~
~a bubble of breath~
~at the bottom of the well~
~whiskey man~ X
~have ye ever seen it empty~
~drink it from the bottom~
~they fill it up & up ye go~
~laughing in the barroom~
~have ye ever known a pretty girl~~
~who isn’t mad for dancing~
~whose passion grows & up ye go~
~whiskey man romancing~
~this one’s for the whiskey man~
~set ‘em up & knock ‘em down~
~another for the whiskey man~
~ready for another round~

~sometimes he rides a bicycle~
~& leaves it at the bar~
~the police locked him up a lot~~
~he used to drive a car~
~when he called the operator~
~said honey please trace this call~
~the lights are out the gig is up~
~but I sure had a ball yeah~
~this one’s for the whiskey man~
~set ‘em up & knock ‘em down~
~another for the whiskey man~
~ready for another round we go~

~he always gives me a listen~
~never starts no trouble~
~it sure gives me a lift-me-up~
~to buy that man a double~
~he’s grateful as a puppy~
~a friend who has no friends~
~whose toothless smile says, “up we go”~
~empty glasses end to end yeah~
~this one’s for the whiskey man~
~set ‘em up & knock ‘em down~
~another for the whiskey man~
~ready for another round we go again~

~I found the whiskey man one day~
~his head down on the bar~
~I’d never had to hold him up~
~that boiler maker star~
~laid him in a wooden box~
~so when all the ladies passed~
~they could have a look-me-see~
~& kiss his whiskey ass yeah~
~this one’s for the whiskey man~
~set ‘em up & knock ‘em down~
~another for the whiskey man~
~ready for another round we go again & again & again

~this one’s for the whiskey man~
~set ‘em up & knock ‘em down~
~another for the whiskey man~
~ready for another round we go yeah~
~this one’s for the whiskey man~
~set ‘em up & knock ‘em down~
~another for the whiskey man~
~ready for another round we go again & again~
~round we go again~
