I once knew a sedate gent with class,  
who would not drink red wine at church mass.
Would take a wee sip,
to wet his wee lip,
since red wine made him expel built gas.

Was time for his daughter to marry,
gentleman who liked to drink sherry.
Being a good dad,
he toasted the lad,
then prayed for audacious canary.

    Thanks Joyce but the only thing left is canary which can be said as having 3 syl. but all my dictionaries say 2 syl. can't think of anything else.
