An attempt at Thomas D's ghazal challenge.


Dry

One week in, and I'd kill for a cold glass of beer.
(Say the word and I will, for a cold glass of beer.)

There's no painkiller out there that works half so well;
I would trade any pill for a cold glass of beer.

I would storm any castle, brave the fires of Hell,
Climb that Duke of York's hill for a cold glass of beer.

Free drinks, but for pickle fans only? That's swell!
I'd get slathered in dill for a cold glass of beer.

There's a bar in the junkyard? I won't mind the smell;
I'd parade through the swill for a cold glass of beer.

Bisexual threesomes? Sure! That won't repeló
I'd do both Jack and Jill for a cold glass of beer.

Whose idea was this month off from drinking, pray tell?
You can send them my bill for a cold glass of beer.

Ah, Court, 'twas your hubris that spawned this dry spell,
And you'll wait three weeks still for a cold glass of beer.
