Blue Hawaiian

It’s been a while since I sipped something so blue
And not sugary sweet but caloric with alcohol
Oh I detest Kool Aid and that tiny amount
Of sweet syrup pooled at the bottom of snow cones
Underneath an rounded mound of shaved ice
Gone too soon, leaving only film on teeth

It’s been a while since I felt this mellow
Calmed by a few ounces of a chemical mixture
Distilled grains, carbohydrates, food coloring
Oh I don’t understand why it’s blue but tastes
Of sweet oranges and tropical sunsets
When mixed with the rum of malibu

It’s been a while since I had that buzz
That, I’m-still-capable-but-uninhibited,
Feeling about everything which means
Awake after midnight, drinking on Monday
Oh wait, due to no job, no homework
If only I was still at college

Based on that blue Hawaiian I took about 2 hours to drink and is probably giving my heartburn right now. Therefore I am trying to stay up later so it can subside which means silly poems about my drink. Enjoy!
