Zymurgy

The branch of chemistry
Called zymurgy
With its products in our gut,
And a word penultimate,
Ferments heated argument,
Brings us cheer, gets us drunk
Products such as wine and beer
That drain our pockets through the year

    I am educated, I will need to study this chemistry in more detail. Perhaps others can provide the subject matter and prevent the draining of my pockets.

    Interesting work..So zymurgy is the chemistry of making wine, liquors, and beer?..Some people get something growing in their gut and create their own fermented drink within..Sara

    Any old thing can drain our pockets, but alcohol helps us forget how and why they do so for awhile. Enjoyable, and zymurgy is a new one for me--always appreciated.
