An Ode to Beer

A Sonnet for the month of January, a poem about beer by Fledermausi


My joyful beer, you inspire me to write.
How I love the way you set free and delight,
Invading my mind both the day and night,
Always dreaming about the idiosyncrasy.

Let me compare you to a library?
But you’re more frothy, foamy, useful!
Intoxicating berries of January,
And wintertime with you is not abuseful

How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love your robust hoppy shameless taste
Thinking of your thirst-quenching fills my days.
And piss produced from you is more than waste

Now I must away with a drunken heart,
Remember my brisk words whilst we’re apart.
