A Warning!                                                                                                                               

Inspired by and derived from Biblical Scripture.

Proverbs Chapter 23, verses 29 - 35.

I gazed long upon the glass, full of mixed drink. Sparkling light crystal and smooth as long mink. It glides down the palate, soothing as it goes. Then bites like a viper, the beginning of many woes. It stings like a bee ... strange things I then see. Sprawled on the ground, groveling in the dirt. They hit me and hit me, but I was not hurt. They beat me and beat me. I felt nothing I think. When I wake up, I will look for more drink.

Thanks Eric! Here's another original that is meant for fun and no disrespect. "He took the cup; And when He had given thanks; He saith unto His disciples ... Bottoms Up Boys!"
