Merrily We Go

A sweet natured drunk
he seduced her with signs
and three stars

Alcoholically speaking
he pined over the memory of ash blonde
missing the mahogany heart that wanted him

She was sober
falling for the man he almost was

Brought together on a balcony
with marriage they opened a bottle so deep
they’d have to swim up
to Hell

Fun facts on Sylvia Sydney: she played Juno, the dead, cigarette-smoking old lady with the slit throat in "Beetlejuice" and the yodel loving grandma in "Mars Attacks".
