Partying philosophy


Partying hard in splendid company
is fun as long as it goes on,
but you had better not think of the following,
the consequences, life after the blackout,
when you wake up to a blinding morning
with outrageous sunshine
to accompany the blacksmiths in your head;
so better keep it on,
the partying, until you can end up
totally unconscious in your bed
at best, or on the floor, at worst,
in someone’s vomit.
Anyway, it’s fun in the beginning,
and since it’s so enjoyable indeed,
at least in the beginning,
why then bother in advance
about the afterthoughts?

You have a very good point and I really enjoyed reading this, as a non drinker I found it very enlightening. Sue.


Good work!! As for me I tend to be able to drink for days and not much happens (although admittedly it was quite some time ago it happened last time)…:)

I think “explicit” is acommon word for things like yours these days …


As Benjamin Franklin wrote to Abbe Morollet: “Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy!”


I like this, it reminds me of my teenage years when there wasn’t a care in the world and worrying about tomorrow wasn’t important, just living in the moment was all that mattered.
Only wish I could do it now!

Thanks for the memory.



You capture that play on regardless nature we all experience. The prosy nature of the first part is non-stop, determined even. The second bit – the conclusion, is indeed inconclusive. Yet it’s the rationale we all like to give… I enjoyed this very much.
