Priatnov poetry. Poem of the Month - March and April 2017

sadness in a Polish bottle
.
the poster says
"come on, drop your sadness
in the depth of a bottle"

a doubtful advice
even in times of crisis

however Polish bottles contain treasures
of excellent vodka's and comforting beers

the drinks they present in wintertime
make you forget your troubles

if only for a moment
even longer when you have company

too often troubled through history
Poland survived

perseverance and independent thinking
probably helped more than drinking

poetic, humorous and philosophical thoughts
may have helped as well
.
