The Drunkard


Question

Alas my story's

Older than yours surely

Yet no skeletons in my closet to oust

It's oft been said

I've one hollow leg

But more often than not I am soused

Thus you should know

A degenerate au

Contraire this beast 'tis but barely

Aim for the stars

That enemy of ours

Self-absorbed I am known not unfairly

And still with me

On my own I will be

Nevertheless forever unnerving

So tell me somehow

What am I now

A freeloader that's truly deserving?

Right on - well done mo ma and mo

Alas my story's

Older than yours surely - a prehistoric creature

Yet no skeletons in my closet to oust - soft tissue/no bony skeleton

It's oft been said

I've one hollow leg - body is hollow and attached to some surface

But more often than not I am soused - not necessarily drunk but soaking wet

Thus you should know

A degenerate au - not de- but re- generate

Contraire this beast 'tis but barely - one of the simplest forms of animals

Aim for the stars

That enemy of ours - starfish are predators

Self-absorbed I am known not unfairly - indeed

And still with me

On my own I will be - immobile without external forces

Nevertheless forever unnerving - no central nervous system

So tell me somehow

What am I now

A freeloader that's truly deserving? - maybe a little double double entendre
