Hair of the Dog

Oh the drinks, nor just a few:
Spirits, wine and steins of brew!
Bonnet buzzing manic bee.
Redde dithyrambic due!

He tried prairie oyster brew,
Merely made him heave anew;
Same sad luck with herbal tea.
Redde dithyrambic due!

He played Rhapsody in Blue
To help down mulligan stew.
How to slouch towards Innisfree?
Redde dithyrambic due!

At a sudden stroke he knew!
What should a sodden poet do?
Sip rhyme sap from the bay tree!
Redde dithyrambic due!
