Drink, drink, drink!
Hello everyone, welcome to you one and all.
We are now on Day 11 of NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month).
Today’s prompt can be found over here:-
So ladies and germs, the task today is to write a high falutin’ piece about love and wine. Looks like somebody up there likes me and is obviously taking into account that it is Friday – party on!
I also wanted to make this a bit playful too – perhaps a combination of Frank Sinatra and Weird Al Yankovic – now there’s an eclectic pairing – hope you enjoy it!
“A Treasured Night To Remember” by David Ellis
Just one glass of champagne
Can make us do crazy things
When I’m with you
Life can be so beautiful
I don’t want rush this at all
First we’ll start out the night
Taking in the magnificent sights
Dancing the night away
Searching Google Maps relentlessly
Especially now the format has changed
Until we find a restaurant we want
That has those little bread sticks
And vol au vonts you like so much
I have no need to complain
You never fail to entertain
After we’ve worked our way through
A bottle of White and then Rosé too
It’s time for us to celebrate
Finishing things off with
Dainty chocolate cheesecakes
Champagne is finally on the menu
The buzz and the thrill
As it tickles our nostrils
As vigorously as the aquamarines
Yearning, burning, in your passionate gaze
Then more champers for the ride home
Spending time admiring the stars
And if anyone tries to mug us
We’ll introduce the business end
Of a spare bottle to the poor sap’s skull
Stepping over his twitching body
Holding hands and laughing
Because we forgot to pay the bill
Life can sometimes be so cruel
But tonight, we’re both having a ball!
