Your Town
Through Harold’s Lens:

Heaven to hell

Took my soul to hell
Alone
In the dark.

Hell to heaven

8,394 1/2 days
Rode the wagon
with soft friends.

Heaven back to hell

Only 1 beer
1 led to 2
2 led to 4
4 led to 8.

11:00 am

Team meeting
Straight talk
Messrs Grey Goose,
Crystal Head, Finlandia,
Stolichnaya, Absolut,
Smirnoff, Belvedere,
Skyy and Pinnacle.

No body odor
Made me feel good.

3

Discussion with wife.
4
Argument with wife.
5
Wife disgusted.
6
Daughter terrified.
7
Grandchildren scared.
8
Friends shuffled away.

One for the road.
10
Just a nightcap.
11
Messrs rolled across floor
Naked and empty.

Soul back in hell
Alone
In the dark.

Wagon left without me

Ring. Ring. Ring.
“Hello
Alcoholics Anonymous.
Can I help you?”

“My name is Mark.
I’m an alcoholic.”
