They had to get a drink
Nerves were frayed and tired
Demetrius was not in the best of moods
His temper frayed and fired.
The bar was empty except for a few
Die hards who drank day and night
Chalky was scared that Demetrius would start
An un-needed bar room fight.
Demetrius sat staring at his drink
Chalky tried to console his friend
He stared into the empty glass
Trying to be happy, but in pretend.
After a few more drinks they left the bar
Happily without any trouble
Even though Demetrius was hitting it hard
By ordering everything by the double.
They arrived back at the house slightly inebriated
Chalky was singing an old song
But Demetrius was still pensive
Thinking Chalky was wrong.
Julia was still fast asleep
As the pair tipped toed into the lounge
Chalky made for the kitchen then
To see what he could scrounge.
The fridge was always full of food
Chalky was in paradise
But before he went for something to eat
He raided the freezer for ice.
