Stitches by Steve Passey

If you have ever had glue

where you should have had 

stitches because you were too

drunk to shut up, just shut up

and you couldn’t hold onto your

seat, hell, you couldn’t even 

hold onto the floor and

you showed me yours when

I couldn’t even find mine

I’d say that was a pretty 

good time and I’d say let’s

do this again, soon, real soon,

but maybe we’ll start earlier

and not drink so much so fast

and you can decide if we go fast

or go slow and maybe the glue

will be enough.

The End
