“Struggling Home” – a hex sonnetta

We’re mates. We all went out
We spent so long at pub
a-gargling from the mugs
of cider, beer and stout,
the land-lord threw us out.
We give ‘im quite a drub.

In dark we trundled home.
To my befuddled brain
The gate catch were a strain.
I struggled in the gloam
to get meself in home –
to get throwed out again!

I’m cold, I’m wet, I sneeze –
O Wife! A cuddle, please?
