(15) Out All Night #NAPOWRIMO

AND THE ASSIGNMENT IS: Our prompt (optional, as always). Today, the challenge is to write a poem that incorporates the idea of doubles, because today marks the halfway point in our 30-day sprint. You could incorporate doubling into the form, for example, by writing a poem in couplets. Or you could make doubles the theme of the poem, by writing, for example, about mirrors or twins, or simply things that come in pairs. Or you could double your doublings by incorporating things-that-come-in-twos into both your subject and form. Happy writing! — taken from www.napowrimo.net 

Oh, what was it I was thinking? Stayin' out all night a'drinkin'
With the boys back from my Army days;
Had a little bit of trouble -- couldn't drive, was seein' double
After Tequila, it all was in a haze.

Had some gin and slammed some whiskey -- was feeling just a little frisky
(Around then, I think it was I lost my phone);
Tried some Sherry and some Brandy -- 'til the barman sounded scary:
"Take your paws off my girls and git your own!"
