Drowning my morrows
[News item: Flood of 2.2 million litres of wine in Portuguese town of Sao Lourenco do Bairro when storage tank burst]

At a bistro, I ordered a bottle of Sauvignon red,

Not a whole river to carry me to the sea.

I'd tarried to 'drown my sorrows' before bed,

But soon the wine was busy drowning me!
