WHITNEY (WHISKEY)

Submitted by Warren Woods to Contest #5 in response to: Write a story about someone striving for a "comeback."... view prompt

Before I knew Whitney, my life was full of plight

Before I knew Whitney, I wasn’t driven by the fight

Before I knew Whitney, my life was full of pain

And before I knew Whitney, I was full of doubt and disdain 

Before I knew Whitney, I wasn’t very brave

And before I knew Whitney, I needed to be saved

Now that I’ve met Whitney, my life is full of fun

And now that I’ve met Whitney, the days flow into one

But now that I’ve met Whitney, my wallet’s feeling thin

And ever since I met Whitney, the walls around me spin

I wish I could quit Whitney, so that my head again was clear

And if I could just quit Whitney, I wouldn’t drop a tear

I could return to life again, so virtuously pure

Expelling Whitney from my life must surely be the cure

So tonight I killed Whitney, ‘cause she wouldn’t let me be

I poisoned her like she did to me and dumped her in the sea
