Single Barrel

Single Barrel

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

Had a sip of Jack Daniel's:Single Barrel by accident so these are the thoughts that ran through my mind as it hit me.

"

Warm

Fuzzy

Heat up the throat and chest

Cools

Tempers the tongue

Relaxes the body

Unchains the mind

A kingly drink

Welcoming to the gentlemen as w****s are to lepers

Every melting sip repeats the experience

No complaints

Ride the cycle

Ride the cycle down to timeless nod

It's always great when people write about the odd little occurrences in their life . . . instead of vast plots already written. How did you accidently have a sip of Jack Daniel's, is what I would like to know? Personally, I'm no fan of alcohol, but I have drunk it before, but my own experience has never been quite as pleasant.

I like that line as well, who knows what I'd write after a shot or two, maybe an Opus lol
I can confidently tell you the imagery is great in this cuz I can't even drink alcohol (health reasons, so I better not sip anything by accident lol) but I get the idea perfectly through this piece.
