i remember walking towards whyte

i was on your right side and slightly behind when you said

'gates, i think you drink too much'

i cannot recall my response in words

but i remember feeling as if you were both right and wrong

last night i listened to my friend talk about quitting drinkin'

with a drink in his hand

i sat there wondering if you still eat a lot of brussel sprouts 

and drive that army green jeep

and hang out with jon and talk about cars and lift weights

my favourite sport back then was to do what dick did last night

sit in the bar drinkin' while wishing i was sober

i can tell you that it is a lot better being sober wishin' i was drinkin'

but i don't do much of that anymore either

i hope you are eating your greens
