Drunkard’s Dream

Drunkard's Dream

No hard facts, only legend
Remains from that fateful night
Truth revealed would bring his end
His sanity in question
His very safety threatened
Truth must never see the light
No hard facts, only legend
Remains from that fateful night

To spread his tale serves no good
It likely never happened
Forget it, you really should
Just as any sane man would
Rambling rants of haunted woods
Surely must be imagined
To spread his tale serves no good
It likely never happened

Best forget all that you heard
No more than a drunkard’s dream
Why, even his facts are slurred
And worth no more than his word
Clearly, his memory’s blurred
As wild as his story seems
Best forget all that you heard
No more than a drunkard’s dream
