O Wonderous Grape

O wonderous grape!
Thy size belies the depths you offer
To those seeking shelter from harsh reality.


Come!
Be mine, O slender cup of wine,
Envelope mine own within your tender fist.

Another!
Yet more, slip down my throat as easily
As the words that pour from thy bottle.

Freedom!
For the wealth of esteem that doth gush within
Brought forth by the Easy Grace of the tipple.


Mercy!
Take heed of my plead
For I cannot.
Will not.
Crawl back within mine shell.
