RAILINGS SUPPORT THE MAN

 
The railings are there to steady the man  
If they can't support him nothing can 
For the effects of alcohol are making him sway 
So much to drink is clouding his mind today 

Spirits and beer are a deadly combination 
The man is oblivious to his own deliberation
What caused him to drink so much in a short time 
Fallen out of love or fallen into crime ? 

How will this man survive and end the night
Being sick perhaps or maybe involved in a fight  
The railings will still be there come early morn 
The man meanwhile will wish he hadn't been born
