Boozing Brother by John G Hall

I am your
boozing brother,
always getting in
the rebel round.
 
I am your 
listening post,
loving your
every word.
 
I am your
peaceful 
punchline ,
 
to the hope
in the privacy 
of shared jokes.
 
I am your
humanities
conservation,
 
against the
capitalistic
sex drunk
predators. 
 
I am your
hatreds
stumbling 
block.
 
I am your
lover without
a buyers brand,
 
without hunger
fogging my heart
without the kill.
 
I am your
happy satellite 
broadcasting,
 
the magic world 
of your every move,
every sweet note 
amplified in my soul.
 
I am your
boozing brother
always buying
you another sup, 
 
and between our
lips we share out
the taste of love.
 
I am the
boozing brother,
your spirit
sobered up.
