Wine, Wine

Wine, wine, let's call it wine
The perfect companion to the colonial mind
It engrosses the appetite, dulls the taste
Ennobles, enables a vaster consumption
A brisker, a brasher, a civilised pace

And oblivion, oblivion
Isn't that just now the perfect state of mind
A platform, a polity, an animal kind
In its cups and cruel in its dawnings
All civilisations end - Brew weeds fellows
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . Bask
In this
Our proudly elective, concupiscent mourning

Nice jaunty opening Jules.
A brisker, a brasher, a civilised pace
Not sure how civilised fits with brisker/brasher

I couldn't really follow much of this, but there are some ear grabbing sonics and concupiscent is an addition to my vocabulary.

best
