Drink and Be Merry

There are those who like

to imbibe white wine

produced in vineyards

by the river Rhine.

Maybe a dry Riesling

or else the Eiswein

whose grapes were frozen

while still on the vine.

 

Although drinking vino

is thought to be fine

by some, the rest

are of the opinion

that beer is best

and they look forward

to quench their thirst

at the Oktoberfest.

 

They do not intend

to be drinking hard

but can be tempted

by an extra tankard.

If they end consuming

more than they can cope

it will be the beginning

of a slippery slope.

 

The dates of the festival

had been duly pencilled

in many people's diaries

but now it's been cancelled

and for that we've to thank

the current pandemic,

so any intention to attend

is purely academic

 

We may remain at home

where we can sit and glug

home-made real ale

from a glazed Toby Jug

The alternative we have

to drink and to be merry

is to ingest canned beer

brewed in County Kerry.

Well the pandemic is enough to drive anyone to drink! 🍾 🍷 🍸 🍹 🍺 🥂 
I look forward to some mulled wine at the Christmas Market. Only time will tell if that is another casualty.
Cheers

I never let good advice interfere with my plans.
