Stanley Bittersweet

Stanley Bittersweet

sweet talked Cider Rose,

meeting and greeting her

through the brown

tinted glass bottle.


Cider Rose frothed

and sparkled to

Stanley’s foam,

wanting him to unscrew

her bottle top

whilst she ringpulled him into

a cocktail glass.


But Stanley’s strength failed,

being only 4.5%.

So Cider Rose asked

the strong armed publican

to undo her top.

And Stanley’s sweetness

turned bitter.
