Long Trek Home

I lost my way,
So I ran away,
Ventured too far,
Got in a stranger’s car.

Through my folly,
I’ll never see my family,
If only I can backtrack,
But the dead can’t come back.

Barfly, Beware!

I want to tell you a tale
About what happened in Dubai.
One night after drinking ale,
I ran over this tall guy.
He had a long, forked tail
That he stuck into my eye.
Then he dragged me down to hell,
Where I stayed in a hot and smelly cell.
