And one more for the day

Two guys are sitting in a dive bar, commiserating over a couple of drinks.

First guy is complaining to the second guy, “My life is a country music song.  My wife left me, sued me for divorce.  Wants the house, the kids and the dog. I had to sell everything.  Now all I have are the clothes on my back, my lousy job and some cheap gin.”

The second guy drinks his martini in one gulp, takes the olive and pops it in his mouth.  He just kind of rolls it there for a minute, savoring its salty flavor.  He says, “Partner, you sure do have it rough, but I’ll be honest with you, I’ve been in a worse spot myself.  I was raised a life long vegan.  No meat, no animal product of any kind.  Last month I was bit by a werewolf.” #veganwerewolfproblems

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
