Fine Whine

The sauces are panning
the fragrance divine
soon we will sit
who chose the wine?

Its fish are you crazy
you got red that’s no good
it’s nearly time
to open the hood.

I thought it was beef
you planned to roast
so I spied a good shiraz
to usher the toast.

So do not complain
or draw a fine line
over what we enbibe
soon we will dine,
and you’ll enjoy it you will
whether its sweet or its dry
take my word for it
you wont keel over and die.

Either way that you go
they’ll drink essence of grape.
It tickles the fancy
from foot to the nape.

Look I’m not going back out
to the store cause you switched
from cow meat or veal
instead to the fish.

You’ll drink what you’re given
and enjoy it just fine
in the end its champagne
so please just don’t whine.

Doug Heyman, Key West, Florida
February 2005
