So Pretty

A day so pretty
Even a harsh hangover
Cannot ruin it.

Morning Mead

Gongs chime in my ear.
The pounding, pulsing, painful
morning after mead.

Written by Medsen Fey.

References: Mead is fermented honey. Beer is when you convert the starches of grain to sugars and ferment that.

For those BHD purists that think it would be cheating to publish a mead haiku I offer you this one inspired by the raucous fermentation of my Belgian Dark Strong going on right now:

That’s Entertainment

The yeast do their jobs
In a violent frenzy
Watching the wort churn

Ouch

Can someone please stop
All the frickin’ leprechauns
Dancing in my skull

Defeated and hungover
Hoping for a cure

The Christmas Party

Sheer jubilation.
If only the hangover
Could be as fleeting.
