Repeating an idiom is
the bane and curse of written lines
for non standard meanings need signs
about kicked buckets and slow fizz.
About kicked buckets and slow fizz
there’s a whole lot of fuss and strife
where lists prescribe the length of life
and wines demand you pass a quiz.
If you pass a quiz to drink wine
there’s no need to laugh and feel smug
numerous tests of nose and jug
show no tongue can tell meh from prime.
If no tongue can tell meh from prime
even before the drinking starts
the switch to cheap red after dark
would not be a provable crime.
An unprovable crime could not
end with bushels of unmarked cash
or jewels in your private stash
for unearned wealth can get you caught.
