9. Whiskey Night Revisited

OK, thanks to Ed (he knows who he is), for writing a ditty on Irish Whiskey which fed this somewhat but not related poem!

Admission time: I did NOT know the definition of "duff" when writing this poem, I looked it up once I wrote it. . . I was SOOOOO excited when I realized I could keep it in under both definitions. . . in my mind at least.

"Duff ", by definition, is basically a layer of organic litter on the forest floor -- decomposing litter -- that is. Perfect word for this, I think.

Slang for it is found here: Urban Dictionary, but I was thinking more of the U.K definition, number 7. . . don't go reading more into it!

Oh, yeah, the poem, post the poem. . . Only one today!

Whiskey Night Revisited

I don't do whiskey,
well didn't. . .
until that night on the bluff
with him

My blonde hair spread out
on the moss. . . .
after much tossing about (and stuff)
beneath him

I'll never do whiskey,
not again. . .
I'd rather take a cuff
from him

than go to sleep a blonde
and wake
seen as a redheaded duff
by him.


In case you are wondering:
this is fiction and no harm
is/was meant toward redheads, it was
merely a reference to the poem that
prompted this. (Nor do I condone being
cuffed up the side of the head - poetic
license, here.)

These words are mine.
Please, do not use them without my permission.
You are welcome, however, to link back to them.

Sure Marcia, we know how you really feel. ;)

In my words:

This is but a one-sided conversation;
it takes you to make it more.
