The timid man, he comes alive

when alcohol he does imbibe


he acts in haste and quickly mocks

becomes a growling, yelling cock


whatever is bugging him

bursts out like bees from hive within


if you’re his enemy, beware

the spit-stained words you’ll surely bear


if once, he ever bought a lemon

those skids be clearly seen from Heaven


and if a job he clearly hated

the boss evermore be under rated


the girls who nixed him hastily

will wish they called him back, times three


but then, when this guy sober is

he thanks the Lord he didn’t fizz.
