‘Twas The Night Of Black Out Drinking, As Told By Comey’s Testimony

‘Twas the night of black out drinking and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, you’re all still blacked out.

You slept with jeans on, you didn’t brush your teeth.
You’re pretty sure you sexted that one guy from Tinder, Keith.

and my knees?

Lordy, indeed, this day is so bleak.
Your friend tells you there’s video of you
dancing topless in the street.

“Imagine those surfacing!” you say,
“At least my dad is dead.”

Your thirst is heavy, your mouth dry.

“No more alcohol ever again!”
You declare to your liver and all of your friends.

Your phone beeps – Oh! It’s your crush, Michael!
But he has some disturbing news:
