The candor of the bottle brings trouble in the morning
when its repercussions start to bloom with little warning.
One’s midnight refusal to utter statements truthless
might, once daylight dawns, be considered to be ruthless.
A drunk’s stubborn insistence to reflect only reality
has been known to end relationships with a certain finality.
Hidden covetous feelings might hereby be revealed
when questioning the ethics of a friend’s investment yield.
One more lifted shot glass can cause snafus in decisions
over topics covered in the next round of derisions.
So some strategic planning should be used on one’s nights out,
regarding confidential matters that one is apt to spout.
When drinking, topics talked about must thus be planned strategically,
for pains caused by loose lips are not ones solved analgesically.
