His new best drinking buddy

It just blows my mind
how the world is totally out of control
he said pointing at the television
at the fires and floods
and children bearing arms
not to mention the ridiculous
landscape of American politics

Hey Billie
set us up with another round he said
and Billie poured two draws of PBR
and two shots of Hawkeye Whiskey

Don’t worry buddy I got this one again
he said pushing his dollars away
but as I was saying
there’s not any more violence today
than there’s been in the past
it’s just that more people
are now in the know

Hey Billie can you turn the station
on that damn thing
there’s gotta be something better on
than the national news

He put his arm around his newfound friend
who didn’t have much to say
but he sure had a big ass grin on his face
when Billie was told to line them up again
