Just One Drink

“Just one drink”
That’s what I say,
That’s all I need
To get through this day.

Now that’s gone,
“So what’s one more?”
It won’t make a difference
If I have three or four.

I don’t have a problem,
I can stop at any time.
“So why didn’t I stop
After number nine?”

I’m living in a cycle
That doesn’t seem to end.
Just one drink,
Turns into ten.
