Milquetoast Whine

Sickeningly sweet, deceptively acidic,
supposedly enhanced by methods scientific;
an intoxicating brew proffered liberally
by those too high to see their own pomposity.

Truth be told, it’s a pervasive potation
billed under the label ‘No Color Designation’
distilled from sour grapes off a bleeding heart vine,
a potent concoction called Milquetoast Whine.

Hi Shirley, sorry had to pull one out of the bag. The new band had its first gig friday and I was a nervous wreck, leaving me wiped yesterday. But I'm happy to report that they loved us and are supposed to book another job. Ahhhh

Hey Glenn, thanks a lot, I truly appreciate your great comments, and immensely enjoy your writing. Glad we encountered each other at Poets 101. c[] <---- beer for ya!
