Oh, bitter was the ruddy fluid
Our guest assailed we sots with.
But we still quaffed it, I and these
Good fellows I drank shots with.

Ere long it seemed as if our eyes
Were made just to see spots with;
And my poor tongue felt like a thing
That's made just to scrub pots with.

Alright, it's not perfect form, what with the extra
unstressed syllable at the end of each even-numbered
line.  But... but... I should get extra points since
it's a true story.  Yeah, that's it...


"We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done." 
     --Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
