Cheap Wine

Charging nine twenty-five for a glass
Of merlot in this joint? Thanks, I'll pass.
I like Walmart's low rate. 
At just two eighty-eight,
I can drink the whole bottle. What class!

I don't have to own futures and stocks
Or hang out with some overpaid jocks.
'Cuz I've often opined 
That the best wine you'll find
Can be poured from a spout on a box.

Written June 17th for Francine Roberts' Bottle of Wine, (fruit of the vine, when.......)
