coke and pain

by Chevy

Drink Coke and try again...

Can't remember the last time
you peered under a bottle cap
and actually won.

Glare at the receipt
no refunds, no returns
so shake the bottle
and let it explode.

Everything you do has reason
But nothing you do is right.

Drink Pain and try again...

Wow, this is great. Sorry for my lack of words, I'm feeling rather silent right now.

seems rather dark and depressing. But the wording and imagery are nice.

Thank you so much! Yes...it is depressing. For some reason I was going for that. *shrugs*

Well, that was depressing. But it's a well-expressed idea and Coke is a great metephore for it.
