Home Brew

There once was a friend of mine,
Who was famed for making wine.
Her visits were great,
As she brought a crate -
But I lost a week each time.

For Francine's Bottle of Wine contest, written 17th June

    My grandfather once went to jail for making moon shine, he got one year. and he was in his 70's at the time, but they let him out after a few months. this was a funny one, really enjoyed it. thank you for commenting on Warm Breezes.
