Ode to Beer

ODE TO BEER

They call you nectar,
Nectar of the Gods,
Bringer of joy
And sorrow in
Equal turn.

They call you beverage,
Alcoholic beverage,
Liquid courage
Or chemistry in
Equal measure.

They call you evil,
Evilest of vices,
Killer of minds
And bodies in
Equal Time.

They call you center,
Center of the party,
Necessital
And pivotal in
Equal doses.

I call you delicacy,
Delicacy for the writer.
Wine’s bitter and dry
Palate is never
Your equal.
