Three Word Wednesday

Growl; verb: make a low guttural sound of hostility in the throat; (of a person) say something in a low grating voice, typically in a threatening manner; noun: A low guttural sound made in the throat; a low throaty sound made by a machine or engine.

Justify; verb: show or prove to be right or reasonable; be a good reason for.

Each sip you take
You justify 
You make excuses as your growl
Each word of ridicule
All this hype for...
No one really cares
As you echo out
Your abuse
As you justify each action
As you take yet another sip
The pain you cover
As you toss out more pain to others
This public display
And hype 
Of yet another 
Ruse as you growl
Your way yet
Through another drunken stupor
Each one more painful than the last
Yet you justify each one
As you pick up yet another bottle
Just another excuse to
Cover the pain
As you growl
Through the bottle of pain


Is it raining where you live?
