The Ditch is dear to the Drunken man

The Ditch is dear to the Drunken man

The Ditch is dear to the Drunken man
For is it not his Bed
His Advocate his Edifice?
How safe his fallen Head
In her disheveled Sanctity
Above him is the sky
Oblivion bending over him
And Honor leagues away.



Poem The Ditch is dear to the Drunken man - Emily Dickinson
