Alcohol in the Morning, prose written by P.L. Cobb for
prose, Prose on a Wednesday

Alcohol in the Morning

I like it dark as sin,

Sweet, rich flavors of malt, chased down with coffee …

… No sugar with my coffee, just cream.

Amber ale is fine, but stout makes my heart sing …

… Alcohol in the morning, and the excitement it brings:

Imagine yourself–responsible adult responsibly drinking in the morning–

That just doesn’t make sense to some.

They do it in Europe, you smugly remind them.

Besides, it’s just one …

One stout chased with coffee (no sugar, just cream)

With your breakfast of sausages, eggs, and toast.

    1. Not if it’s the occasional drink. If you’re abusing it, or are not of a legal drinking age: yes. Do I drink alcohol in the morning? No, but several years ago I would enjoy the occasional brew at breakfast during the weekend, hence the poem. These days I’m into coffee 🙂.
