Gutter Punch Drunk

 
 
Poe may have been a nutter
who died face first in the gutter
but his words will live on to butter
down to the very last crumb
the bread of Gothic romance
starved generations to come
 
His verse today and tomorrow
is a reminder of the sorrow
he tried to drown in the bottle
a depression he could not throttle  
because with four fingers of rum
in each hand, he was all thumb
