Just a Drink

Just a Drink

It’s just a single drink’ silly.
What difference would just a few sips make?
”One drink’. Today it’s too damn chilly.
I had a bad day. Give me a break, for God’s sake.
It’s my liver, why do you care?
It’s not like I am the only one doing it. 
Believe me, I know when to stop, my dear
Look at me. See, I am perfectly fit.
You do have the right to use your body any way
But then again,  don’t your loved ones matter.
Sip by sip, it may become a few drinks a day.
Then all your illusions about control will shatter
By then my friend, it may be too damn late.
Starts with a single drink, and ends with you cursing fate.
