Poem - Try The Wine

“Try the Wine” is a poetic experiment on a scene from “A Clockwork Orange”.


Try The Wine

Try the wine, take a sip
thank you sir, (what is this?)
a good brand, worthy ilk

perhaps a trap, this tender
red with pasta, (a good pair?)
reluctantly I’ll partake

Try the wine, none for me
none for him, the muscle bound
my health excludes just a taste

cheers to you (with false charm)
I’ll check the color, it’s still red
then the smell, claret bouquet

Try the wine, indulge your thirst
while I speak about my wife
she’s gone away, no quite dead

badly raped, with assault
by the vicious hooligans
where you sitting with your glass

Try the wine, now I’m bound
to this chair, left for dead
while the flu took her life

I know better, the modern age
removed my dear from the stage
not Pneumonia, it was them

Try the wine, you sad victim
help is now on the way
phone taken to call some friends

(Alex considers to take leave)
forgive my trouble, I’ll depart
no, no my boy, no trouble at all.
