The Whisky Blot
(Excerpt from magazine’s current issue:)
Q: Your article states:
“Only a loon would drink moonshine too soon.”
But can’t I slurp hootch with my Fruit Loops?
A: NO! No hootch before NOON!
For belting down Ballantine, a.m. might be fine,
but don’t savor White Lightnin’ till afternoon time:
At four, say, or three, or at six, perhaps nine,
five’s good, so is two — even one — we don’t mind.
So, sip some with hors d’oeuvre or truffles at seven,
but guzzle Glenlivet if it’s not yet p.m.’n
