Now, there is an unusual bit of inspiration! I relished your new form with its mixed rhymes and meter. Now, all I need is a "butler"--oh, but I forgot--I don't drink alcohol. Oh, well--I still enjoyed the idea of "Alco-rhythms"! Literal cheers- Joan

Hi Jim. Congratulations on developing this intriguing new form. Another one to add to your collection, all of them interesting and challenging. The word choices themselves are very well done. Marilyn

    Many thanks for reading and reviewing this. I can't think of anything else to write exploiting this form at the moment, but when I do...

Haha, this is a good one, and would you believe I was looking at recipes for Wassail today?
These three lines made me laugh:
Strong Espresso is my coffee,
goes I guess so well with toffee
vodka. Never drink that neat.

Were you talking about "toffee vodka" or did you mean to have a period after toffee? Either way, I liked the admonition.

Finally, you know me - I'm never one to turn down a Buck's Fizz. thanks for the entertainment!

    Many thanks for the six star review of this piece of silliness. Apparently toffee vodka is a liqueur so enjambment is intended here.

    I thought you might appreciate the Bucks Fizz for breakfast.

Yup dipso poetry with an exquisite banquet with rich wines and fine foods that you manage to collect in rhythmic schemes. Thank you for sharing and good luck with your writings.

hahaha, Jim. I agree. Do not try this at home. I love a glass or two of wine with my meal but there it stops. I live in Spain, after all. I loved the poem and it reads very well. All best. Ulla:))

I am feeling a bit woozy after reading this guide to getting merry! You made the whole poem such a lot of fun and I enjoyed the party! I wish you luck with this new form you have created! It sounds a bit complicated . . . I think I need a drink now! Ha ha ha, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

A very well-written poem and an interesting exercise with all those alcoholic beverages will get me tipsy before lunch. I cannot imagine the effect when I cannot even drink a glass of wine then I am feeling it all in my head.

This is fantastic, and I can't wait to try one. I'm amazed that you create such interesting forms. I would never try this at home. First, I couldn't afford it, and second, I'd probably die. lol.

My stick with my suggestion to name this form 'Bartlett's Blend' because of the mixed meter.

I yield to your en-snockered disdain for the time-honored benefits of water, Jim!
Considerably humbled,
Don
PS How bout Neogynt? Neopanty?

Yada yada (fulfilling the arbitrarily established 150-keystroke comment)

    Water?

    Have you seen what thatr stuff does to leather?

    I think I prefer neogynt over neo panty, but thanks for the suggestions and the fun review

reply by Ogden on 05-Jan-2020
    You're very welcome, Jim, and yes, I can see how it would be problematical if you got caught in a rainstorm, but I've never been into that stuff.
    ;o)

Wow, I hope you hadn't felt the need to try all these concotions LOL
I do enjoy expresso with a dash of something but blended scotch in earl grey, that would make my teapot shake. Whatever you call this form, I enjoyed this fun read.
cheers,
valda
