It was Christmas Eve day

In the drunk tank

Already? It’s not even noon!

Why ‘day’ and not ‘babe’?

(Perhaps I’m not awake enough to catch the game.)

Always heard it as “day.” Maybe I should go back to bed. Move along, nothing to see here. Cleanup on Aisle 5!

I was wondering how the cops let you keep your laptop / smartphone so you could post from your inglorious new found home-away-from-home.

*Away with your pills, it’ll cure all ills

Be ye pagan, Christian, or Jew

So take off your coat and grease your throat

With a bucket of the mountain dew.*
