I’ve always been a beer drinker

It seems to be getting more and more difficult to order a drink in a pub nowadays. I am predominantly a beer drinker but occasionally I have a G&T. Ordering a G&T is now like ordering a cocktail, other than the fact there doesn’t seem to be any standard names for the different concoctions. There’s no equivalent to Sex on the Beach...or is there? I stand to be corrected. Anyway here is my poem about the subject:

I’ve Always Been A Beer Drinker

I’ve always been a beer drinker

Didn’t care too much for spirits

But when I did it had to be

A simple glass of G&T

The other day I was in a bar

Thinking of what to drink

Fancied something different

But here was my predicament

When I said I think I’ll have a G&T 

They looked at me confused

We have 50 sorts of gin for you

Here take a look at the drinks menu. 

There was so much to choose from

A brand from every town and city

And what is this fuss about tonic botanical

The choice in the past was full fat or low cal

So many combinations to choose from

Plus the dilemma of what fruit to add

Standing there scratching my head

I decided to have a beer instead.
