Poem: toast

Down the hatch to the tapsters, barkeeps, barmaids, bartenders, and Mistresses Quickly; l'chayim to the vintners, brewmasters, corkers, rumrunners, and distillers; skoal to the grogshops, ginmills, roadhouses, bars, taverns, rathskellers, and saloons; here's how to the supporters of coffin varnish, hootch, whiz, crazy water, and gargle; a toast to those twisted, boiled, hammered, wrecked, tanked, corked, tight, pie-eyed, oiled, shellacked, crocked, ripped, and fried to the hatline. Tomorrow the bill comes due again.
