Bottom of the Glass

Once the bottom of your glass

knows your name

then you have run out of places

to hide your shame.

You thought no one had

witnessed your downfall,

they didn’t see you on your knees

when the alcohol made you crawl

or the days you missed work

blaming a cold.

You never listened because

you didn’t like what you were told.

Bloated and dishevelled

you have become,

ravaged by the drink

and the damage it has done.

Once the bottom of the glass

knows your name

then you know

your numbers up in this game.
