BEER
The Poetry of Beer
Lorrie Leland
It's Ale
-------
Differences in perspective
Simply melt away
after a cup or two of brew

Enlightenment and libation
Go hand in hand;
It’s time to take a serious stand,
To raise the cup
And to go bottoms up;
We’ve got to down one more
It's the ale of legends and lore
(based on "Drunk" by Isabel Tolling)

Beer Song

Oh... what is the malted liquor?
What gets you drunken quicker?
What comes in bottles or in cans?
(Beer)
Can't get enough of it (Beer)
How we really love it (Beer)
Makes me think I'm a man (Beer)
I could kiss and hug it (Beer)
But I'd rather chug it (Beer)
Got my belly up to here (Beer)
I could not refuse a (Beer)
I could really use a beer, beer, beer

The Poet

Well, you see, this beer,
it is so very fine;
I’m beginning to think
I could speak in rhyme;
I was so sad, but now I so shine;
I’m beginning to think
I could speak in rhyme.
(based on "Wine" by Stan Dupp)

My Ode To Beer

I THINK that I shall never hear
A poem lovely as a beer.
A brew that’s best straight from a tap
With golden hue and snowy cap;
The liquid bread I drink all day,
Until my memory melts away;
A beer that’s made with summer malt
Too little hops its only fault;
Upon whose brow the yeast has lain;
In water clear as falling rain.
Poems are made by fools I fear,
But only wort can make a beer.

Hops

Beneath the willow wound
round with ivy
we take cover from the worst
of the storm, with a greatcoat round
our shoulders and my hands
around your waist.

I’ve got it wrong. That isn’t ivy
entwined in the bushes round
the wood, but hops. You intoxicate me!
Let’s spread the greatcoat
on the ground.

Beer,beer, beer.
Beer.
Beer, beer
Someone get me a beer.
Beer.

Dread

Roses are red
Romance is dead
Everyday I suffer
From existential dread
My salvation is however near

Never Broke My Heart

In my fridge are cans of beerLongneck
ice cold beer never broke my heart
Like diamond rings and football teams
have torn this boy apart

Like a neon dream, it just dawned on
me, that bars and this guitar
And longneck ice cold beer never
broke my heart
