Today Bob is twenty one and some - HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB!

I'm thinking tonight that I need to find some new friends cos I'm sitting here at home alone on my birthday drinking from a bottle with no label, I don't even know if I'm going to get drunk! All I'm sure about is that its clear with a fizz. Three cheers for Tommy thats all I can say - okay so he's like the rest of them and not speaking but at least he tries...

So what have you done to change your ways....
the tightness in your chest....
the fear that you will die....
it is a few years ago now....your friends have long forgotten your fears...
and your solitude has returned....the loneliness of the single bed
the meals for one....
nights of searching....and drinking scotch alone
have returned

so what have you done
to change your ways
to live your life
have you made a move
to leave behind the life you ran away from
or have you nurtured
that which you know best
lonely nights
in a cyber world
bottle of scotch
with just one glass

Happy "21 and then some," Bob! It appears that this birthday is making you a bit melancholy... but I hope it's just simple reflection. :)

Dont trade me in for a new friend Bob. I would gladly help you drink some of your fizzy drink, and read some more of your prose. I'm just pouring myself one, so you wont feel lonley. However mine is dark red and does have a label.
Drink up and climb into bed like a good lad, and you will feel better in the morning. Birthdays should be banned after 30.
