Paper Bag

( a Quatern )
 
I canít write my way out a paper bag,
I donít recall my having a stiff drink.
If Iím inebriated, itís a drag;
For being drunk means having fun, you think?
 
The angel on my right announced ďFor shame!Ē
I canít write my way out a paper bag!
ďWhat were you thinking on that holy day?Ē
I donít remember, everyone went stag!
 
The devil on my left said,  ďWhat a hag.
Donít hear her, just listen to what I say.Ē

I canít write my way out a paper bag!
Do you know what I did, maím, on that day?
 
ďDonít call me that it tends to gross me out.Ē
By being here does that mean a red flag?  
ďIím not the real thing Iím just a scout.
I canít write my way out a paper bag!Ē
