‘O honey, I’m having a beer’

‘O honey, I’m having a beer’

I am going to relax a little, I sink into the couch

filled my favorite glass with beer lazily

I am about to sip the fizzy froth

my wife – she called, please help me with the dishes

I said ‘O honey, I’m having a beer’

turn down the music a little, she said

‘O honey, I’m having a beer’

daddy, daddy, can we go for a movie, said my son

‘O munchkin, I’m having a beer’

your mom is on the phone for you, called my daughter

‘O dear, I’m having a beer’

hey man come wanna go for a walk? called my neighbour

‘Enough, I’m having a beer’

I am home today after a long week of work

it’s my day off, please give it to me

I’m so happy having a beer

please let me have a beer – my way

z

i looked out

of my bedroom window

just like that

i sat there in silence

leisurely

my mind vacant

my eyes staring

at the same spot

suddenly i saw

the leaves dancing

to the tunes of the wind

i realized

the leisure break was over

imagination poured in

and there

i discovered myself

with a pen in my hand…
