[Again, a random title generated on the FAWM site.]
Drinking nice must be taught;
It won’t come to you naturally.
Given the choice, you’ll swill and belch
And laugh and slap your belly.
Drinking nice involves a cork
Pulled gently, with finesse,
A sniff, a nod, a swirling gaze
And swishing as a test.
Drinking nice a craft-made beer
A proper glass is needed,
The color held up to the light,
The complex flavors heeded.
Drinking nice at tea-time,
A splash of milk goes first
Into the cup held pinky-up,
Sipped daintily, not slurped.
Drinking nice is yet a sign
Of manners in society.
Ignore it and you’ll earn the name
“A Menace to Sobriety.”
