Bartender, another whisky
	after that shot gun sermon
	to plainly teach us the rock-bottom basics,
	us fallen down into sloth and drunkenness,
	shoving glasses, coins across counters,
	stirring legal positions into slaughter,
	we need detoxification, not to go from
	real bad to worse.

	God has been abundantly generous,
	to manage our affairs in practical life,
	as a pioneer you learn fast
	to use your head to the point,
	stay in your saddle, find your way,
	protect the trail, set up a log hut,
	otherwise there’ll be no sorry, no curse,
	only an unmarked grave.
