on wine

Though yesterday's love does not today care
There is one hope friend, so do not despair
Love may have been your first intoxicant
But alcohol is the poison beyond compare


There was one I loved who is no longer mine
But I have discovered a pleasure more divine
Here is a companion who does not forsake me
What greater bliss than the company of wine?


From the Thabri-nama
