Face in the Picture

There’s a face in the Picture ,

there’s a face in the picture that’s just faded out ;

there was a face in the picture that you could clearly see

there was a face in the picture that was standing next to you and me ;

the face in the picture was smiling ,laughing ,grinning ,

the face was doing what most faces do ;

the face in the picture had a name , had a life , had a home , had a child

but the face in the picture doesn’t ” have ” any of these anymore ;

it’s another face in a newspaper

a face that’s a story ,

a face we won’t see anymore ;

” 4 buckets of vodka and red bull ,

20 bottles of lager ,

shots of Sambuca and Jack Daniels

during a 36 hour binge “.

The report concluded :-

452 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of urine

death from alcohol toxicity are expected at 350 microgrammes.

But the face in the Picture didn’t know that.
