Lloyd – Great bit of fun here. Reminds me of’ Pumkinhead’ Ale that comes out at that time of year. “tis the season,” and we in Salem sure know about that. It’s like a mini Mardi Gras here around Halloween. I mentioned pumpkin flavored ale, but I myself, like my beer au naturel, beer for beer’s sake. Back to the poem; I liked “Jacl-o’-Lantern wind,” “Friar’s art,” “coiling and boiling,” and “kegging tyme.” Question; Are you mixing Old English spellings in this poem, “tyme, frined, clames?” Or is it the sloppy speak of one who’s had too much of the brew? Anyway I enjoyed the poem and hope to be reading more of your stuff.
I actually considered buying one of those brew your own beer kits. The Friars are notorious for brewing the best beer to locally be found. This is a fun and quirky kinky little rendition to remind me of these facts. Good to read something new from you Lloyd.
