A Dozen Bordeaux

A Dozen Bordeaux

A Poem by Dave Brown



On a mountaintop high above Nanaimo

Under the influence of a dozen Bordeaux

The Bearded Gimlet with a bottle in tow

Passing out, had froze neath the snow


Ice ages come and ice ages go

And eventually there was melting of snow

And the Gimlit, still clutching Bordeaux

Rose and descended toward the valley below


The planet had been rid of Mankind

But they’d left their trinkets behind

TV sets still blaring pandemic news

Offering advise on which drugs to choose


Not just for Malaria they would say

Take hydroxychloroquine any which way

The President’s said to use it day after day

Although no living soul could definitely say


As the Bearded Gimlet stood with a muse

Automated reports of freezing came over the news

Answers re; hydroxychloroquine were answered not

Before the Bearded Gimlet refroze on the spot
