The poem is below.


Please use with the utmost moderation
As this is no normal libation
But if you must throw caution to the wind
Please do so with a most coherent friend
It tastes a bit better when sugar is added
Drink plenty of water or your hangover will be rabid
Last but not least, there's one more thing
Don't drink this before an early morning

Congratulation. And if you did, you might cut off year ear like the Absinth drinker after he painted the sunflowers. Many wishes, Kai

Thank you, I used to drink, but not anymore...this was by far the nastiest drink I've ever had.
