Sláinte, Beer Buddy!!

Sláinte, Beer Buddy!!

Oh! My mind would be so crystal clear;
If only I could have a mug of beer!

After a long day of clogging my brain,
I reach home, all broken with strain.

I get a text, my friends calling me over.
So I join their company, like a galloping rover!

The bartender’s hand reaches for the lever;
And pulls down glasses full of frothy beer!

Add to it, a bag full of spicy snackers;
We get started with a game of card-packers.

Amidst the circle of wild friends,
Who know no limits;
We drink together to the twilight,
And out comes all our worldly gimmicks.

The hidden truths and hidden lies,
Are thrown around like verbal flies.

Alas, all my secrets are out.
Now that I’m sober, I’m left with this doubt;
Of the things said and unsaid..

Oh, dear beer! You make me so high.
Once you are in, there’s no going down.
But you make me wake up the next day;
With a bad hangover frown!!

P.S: Popularly known as "man's best friend", who could forget the famous drink of all time- BEER. Hails mostly from the Irish colony, known for its "ruddiness", its a man's drink all in all!! I can't say much about beer, except it kind of sounds like bear :P .. So Slainte to all friends whose night brightens with a mug of this frothy beverage!!

P.S : I wrote this poem for one of my best friend who had to move to another city as her new job was calling. We were friends all the way from the 4th grade and continued our education together till College level. Later we drifted apart to different colleges, but our friendship remained as strong as it should be. In all my recent years of fun-filled ventures, she has been a part of it and what else can I say? She'll continue to be there for me in times of both joy and sorrow. So here's to our lasting friendship.
P.P.S: A talented friend of mine helped me design the above card. My friend was very happy to receive this as a memento to our friendship. :)
