The Demon

Someone else is in control,
His grip is tight, he won't let go.
With powers beyond your wildest dreams.
He'll make you do the worst of things.

He'll cause you to lose all that you own,
Your wife, your kids and even your home.
He's all you need, he'll make you believe
He'll cause you to lie, cheat and deceive.

When he gets you as low as he can,
He'll throw you away like trash in a can.
A tattered and broken, used to be man.

So please my friend before it's too late
Don't let alcohol become your fate.
He can never gain control of anyone
Who learns to say no.........
