the reason for merlot

you see
merlot is shit
you know it
I know it
we all know it

you need to drink merlot
every once in a while
so that the taste of
other wines:
noir, cab, malbec, shiraz,
come across crisper
and cleaner

if all you drink is shiraz
after a while
all you’ll notice
is shiraz tasting like wine
you will think
that all wine is supposed to
taste like that
and it doesn’t!!!

you need to foul your palate
at least once a week
or else you will not know
what tastes like what

so pound a box of merlot
it will help you
and your shitty writing
