Parched

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 15 July 2021, trinket.

My cheapskate friend’s birthday had tolled,
So to open some wine, I cajoled,
As he poured it to drink it,
Found the glasses were trinkets,
When the plonk all leaked out from the bowl.

“plonk” is what we in Britain call a generic, cheap, nasty wine. I didn’t realise that the name didn’t travel, so I’m sorry if you didn’t get that one.
