Mr. Vodka

So now, little man, you've grown tired of grass L.S.D., goof balls, cocaine, and hash. And someone, pretending to be a true friend, said, "I'll introduce you to 'Mr. Vodka', the 'odorless' fiend." Well, 'son', before you start fooling with me, just let me inform you of how it will be. I will seduce you and make you my slave. I've sent 'men' much stronger than you to their grave. You think you could never become a disgrace, and end up addicted to the filth and the waste. So, you'll start drinking me and before very long you'll have me for breakfast and next all day long. And once I have entered deep down in your gut the cravings soon drive you to porn and to lust. You'll need lots of money, (as You've been told) for I get expensive, just like 'liquid gold.' You'll swindle your friends, and just for a buck, you'll steal and hock things. In you should they trust? The money you'll use for a bottle or quick fix, and feel contentment when you've turned a few tricks.

The day when you realize the monster you've grown, you'll solemnly promise to leave me alone. The cold chills and hot sweats, the seizures, the vomit; you'll think you have died but continue to drink it. So you think that you've got the mystical knack, as you sip me and gulp me for a bedtime snack. Then, Sweetie, just try gettin' tied in a knot. The cravings, the screaming for just one more shot. There's no other way and there's no need to look, for deep down inside, you will know you are hooked. You'll desperately run to the nearest bar or pool hall. You'll take me back as you stumble and fall. And when you return (just as I foretold), I know that you'll give me your body and soul. You'll give up your morals, your conscience, your heart, AND you will be mine until DEATH DO US PART Copyright © Carolyn B Hebert 1994

Note (FYI): I have worked as a Methadone Nurse. This poem was inspired by a friend who had this addiction. Several years ago a lady requested a copy to use it in the Houston School District. It was used at a youth center in Fort Worth. Mr.Vodka can apply to any type of drug addiction from narcotics to alcohol.
