Ginger Beer

Back in the day he was famous 

for his hash cakes with ginger bread.

Stoned was an overrated condition,

it needed spicing up a bit, he said.

Too many turgid conversations

and drowsy dancing.

Ginger’s the thing, he said.

to liven things up.

Later he got into home brew.

Try some of this, he said

offering a beery mug full.

Well, I thought

I’d be a mug

not to have a go,

no worries,

no stress,

everything natural,

everything herbal

suitable for vegans,

only the best,

best by the mugful,

he said.

Mugwort and ginger,

the best of the best.
