Art and Lyrics: Liquid Lunch

Artwork: S Bess (Watercolor, pencil, and ink on paper)
Bad Liquor Blues
Listen here people, listen to what I have to say (2x)
If you drink bad whiskey, it will do you this a-way

Make you lose your money, make you lose your best friend (2x)
And when you get sober, swear you'll never get drunk again...
As sung by: Leroy Carr and Scrapper Blackwell

My inspiration for this piece came from a photograph I recently shared with you of my grandfather.

Well, I'm watching the democratic debates so I must go. Take care, my friends. Peace~

Ehy Stephen, that's not bad at all!
And I love the photograph. It's just like you're looking at an old movie.
Very cool.

I'm looking at the democrats election too. Many, many, many Italians would be happy to see Hillary or Obama as the new president. They both show peaceful wisdom and people in the world really need it.

See ya

I agree with your assessment of the election. I'm going with Obama in '08. Peace~

Good to see you. Yes, there are many in the corporate world who participate. :)

That's much better than Slim-Gin. :)
