The Accidental Goldmine

Clipart image of a bottle and glass of liquor.

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 12 January 2022, essence.

There was once an upmarket distiller,
To his hooch added pods of vanilla,
While the drink didn’t sell,
With it’s sickly sweet smell,
He’d developed a world-class painkiller.

    • I remember, as a boy, “vanilla” was the default flavour for e.g. ice cream, and was basically flavourless, but real vanilla is such a lovely scent and flavour, it doesn’t surprise me.
