I'd sip it from a Liqueur Glass
And not swig it down like the clown
The village clown who sits and swigs
He swigs his gin like I'd drink beer
But I won't even swig my own
I'm a tea-totaler straight, a Hill
Billy Boy from the Bible Belt

Today I'm linked with Mama Zen at the Real Toads, Flash Fiction 55 (link)
-- M.Z's. instructions were: "Give me something hot and fresh in 55 words; no more, no less." I did use ONLY 55 words, title included, counted by Microsoft Word. The logo I used is from her post at the Real Toads link.
-- Today's poem is entirely fiction, not one iota relates to ME.
