Tinkle (an acrostic poem)

The electric fence called to the two fraternity brothers

It was the ultimate way to cap a night of bad beer

Now they pulled out their hardware and dared the other to go first

Knowing that in the end they would have to do it together

Looking at the fence before closing their eyes, they counted to three and let loose

Eventually they both realized the fence was not charged.  Shocking!

Easier (an acrostic poem)

Every day was hard for Simon

At least he could reward himself with a beer after work

Sitting on his bar stool he raised his glass to no one

I drink in your honor he thought

Everything began to fit into perspective

Relaxing as put back down the glass and left the bar

Bourbon (an acrostic poem)

Basking in the afterglow of the alcohol’s afterglow

Observing how the light plays among the amber waves

Understanding the time and craftsmanship put in the bottle

Relishing in the transformation of those simple ingredients

But I digress, what did you want to drink tonight?

Only a light beer?

Now you must leave you heathen!

Thriller (an acrostic poem)

Tearing his shirt, Donald looked on with disbelief

His beloved Chicago Cubs had just given up a three run lead in the eighth inning

Reason fled and the fear of the curse gripped him hard

Instead of a celebratory beer, the bitter taste of hops overwhelmed

Looking away from the game, Donald wondered how much he could take

Leaving the television on, he went to the bathroom

Every beat of his heart echoed in his ears, but the anxiety began to relent a bit

Ready once again he headed in to see history being made, one way or another.
