Underberg - The Drinkers' Friend


Brewed from a secret recipe
Nearly two hundred years old
Guarded by the family
Almost valuable as gold.
Using aromatic herbs from
Forty three different Nations
Gathered and despatched
From their various locations.

Distilled in Rheinberg
Forty four percent ABV
Guaranteed pure and
Contamination free.
Bottled labelled wrapped
in distinctive brown twist
Placed prominently by the bar
Where it just can't be missed.

This miraculous infusion,
This  real drinkers friend,
Has brought many a hangover
To a warm and pleasant  end.
Very soon after ingesting
The upset is gone
And so for the dedicated
The drinking carries on.

For services to humanity,
For keeping drinking folk alive,
For all their essential work
May FamilyUnderberg thrive.
I can't understand why
Much to my surprise
They have never ever been
Granted a Nobel Prize
