The Lyrics

I used to hide you in the shadows,
Stash you in the cupboards, here at home
Then sneak and steal your swallows, now and then,
Night and day..
Your taste was always on my mind

Someone would catch me, was my big worry,
Weak resistance, had no inner strength
An unending thirst that ruled my tongue for so long
Staggered through tunnels without light..

Then one day I saw you as a zero
A liquid devil in my sight
Giving you up made me a hero
You were the gin beneath my slings..

A glorious vic'try..though unheralded,
Was filed and recorded in my soul
A fork in the road, a quick U-turn,
The pain was ended..
Thanks to one simple word, Control..

Now each day I see you as a zero,
A liquid devil from the past
Letting you go made me a hero..
You were the gin beneath my slings..

No more..no gin..beneath my slings..

DKTOS, but a nice positive story, a little deeper than the usual fare here. DK whether autobiographical -- you don't have to say -- but congrats on completing the 15-step program, in three sets of Five steps each.

Well done, sir. It's one of those parodies that could have easily gone astray, but you handled the subject matter with a nice straightforward manner. Very cleanly writ.

Very good, AFW... love the OS, and your parody was refreshing. That reminds me, there's a 2-liter of tonic water in the fridge and a 5th of Beefeater in the freezer, both left over from New Year's... better have at least one gin-and-tonic. :-) 5s.

Security code was "LVR", as in a LoVeR of alcoholic libations or one's LiVeR, which takes a beating when one drinks alcohol.
