CLICHE TOWN: Dry Out Hotel

Yeah you checked in late
With your eyes glazed over
Aní tipped the bellhop
Just to get lost

Locked down your room
With the Do Not Disturb
Sign nailed to the
Outside knob

Youíve come to dry out
Donít Inquire Within
If you have a mind for whatís
Good for your health

Itís the usual faire
Some bottles to forget
A pack of smokes and a gun
If it gets ugly

You broke the bulb
Might as well get it done
And you wonít be needing
The light anyway

Go on and get to it
With the wrack and the heaves
And the screams and the cries
And the shaking

Sheís up and sheís gone
Thatís all there is to it
Now you got to get her
Out of your system

So the long nights await
Like a death in the desert
ĎTil your soulís shriveled up
On your bed

Theyíll find you someday
God help them who do
But for now oblivion
Awaits


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

No, it's not necessarily funny by itself, but it's not exactly "Inspirational Poetry", either for lack of a better catagory. And as many of the other "Cliche Town" segments are in Humor for their tongue-in-cheek-noir style, this one gets grouped along with them. Sorry if you had other expectations. --David Ian

Well, now that I'm all cheered up.

I don't get it...is this supposed to be funny?

David, I have been there my friend. God saw fit to save me from myself and 30 years of chronic addiction about 5 years ago. Only through His grace shall we find the peace and serenity we so desperately seek. Blessings, Bill http://jahliveschildren.blogspot.com/
