Of Course – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“A bottle of wine contains more philosophy than all the books in the world.” Louis Pasteur

Of Course

The wine played cunning tricks,
game on me it proposed,
look at your cookbooks, it said,
you cannot eat a single one of them,
and then I got to thinking, I couldn't
read the music score book either, 
nor could I fathom the manual for the
garage door remote, nor the schedule 
for the reticulation system, but I 
steadied myself, of course, and I 
fought back, retorting that, well, I'd
lived this long, and then the coup de gras,
I drank that insufferable wine and had 
another, just to make my point, of course.
