Requiem for a dram

Most common folk may know of this
To be an act of despicable excess
A wasteful plea of conjured sin
A loathing grouse peppered with joy and the sting of relentless ugly
The dignity of the soul which grants the righteous pour
Signals approval, encouragement and bon voyage to the lucky one
The one which has planned this marriage of vessel and sea
The one rampant with stories to be told
Ever the more likely once the sea begins to flow
This of golden variety
Of shanked sobriety
Of lustful tincture
Where the deep gaze and rousing examination
Lift the spirit of this finite sea
To brinks and cliffs of Dover
As vessel and sea become one
And everyone goes home a winner.
