Requiem for a dram

Most common folk may know of this To be an act of despicable excess A wasteful plea of conjured sin A loathing grouse peppered with joy and the sting of relentless ugly The dignity of the soul which grants the righteous pour Signals approval, encouragement and bon voyage to the lucky one The one which has planned this marriage of vessel and sea The one rampant with stories to be told Ever the more likely once the sea begins to flow This of golden variety Of shanked sobriety Of lustful tincture Where the deep gaze and rousing examination Lift the spirit of this finite sea To brinks and cliffs of Dover As vessel and sea become one And everyone goes home a winner. (9/4/12)
