His Treasured Guitar

The bar crowd stood rapt
As he caressed music from
His treasured guitar

God-Like

An ancient treasure
Sparkling in my goblet
Makes me feel god-like

Written by Captain Hops

References: Theobroma means “food of the gods”. This brew is based on a chemical analysis of pottery dating back to 1200 BC. It includes cocoa, honey, chilies, and annato and is comes from Dogfish Head brewery. The result was nothing like what I was expecting. It was light and interesting with with a hint of spice, cocoa and a certain fruitiness. I liked it.

In the deep valley shadows
Winter’s hoarded treasure
