The Drunkard’s Advice

I just stopped by Reason2Rhyme – “So Cliche” for the first time and thought I’d try my hand at it. Below are the instructions for entry.

Reason2Rhyme – “So Cliche”

Monday, July 25, 2012 Poetry Prompt…

Choose a clichéd phrase (“fit as a fiddle,” “think out of the box,” “running on empty,” etc.) and turn it around. Use the new meaning created by this reversal to fuel a poetic meditation.

I have chosen the cliché of having feet of clay (don’t do as I do, do as I say)
The Drunkard’s Advice: Feet Clay

Don’t say as I do, I have clay of feet.
Drink what I say but then beat a retreat
For I’m lying in mud
With a bladder of Bud.
And don’t walk on clay feet from the bar to the street.
