My pockets are empty though my wife has sent me to the store for some
cigarettes and bread... I started walkin there, got as far as the
square, then the smell of beer went to my head... The thing about
beer, it can make a man hear, voices from days long since past, and
with every third drink, it will make you think that your youth will
always last...
