Pabst Blue Ribbon is My Beer

PABST BLUE RIBBON IS MY BEER.
a villanelle by Jake Christie

Pabst Blue Ribbon is my beer
There’s no other beverage for me.
The reasons I drink it are clear.

I hold that shiny pint can dear,
and when I lift it all can see.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is my beer.

Monetary woes I never fear-
it’s available for a nominal fee.
The reasons I drink it are clear.

Some may tease and some may jeer,
but their complaints don’t bother me.
Pabst Blue Ribbon is my beer.

My taste refuses to shift or veer.
So what if it looks like pee?
The reasons I drink it are clear.

I will say it loud for all to hear,
I will swear it on bended knee:
“Pabst Blue Ribbon is my beer.”
The reasons I drink it are clear.
