twas the night before rum quest

A Reef Warrior Christmas Tradition…….

The night before Rum Quest

T’was the night before rum quest

And all along the beach

No rum could be found

Not even the Screech

The reef warriors were fast asleep

Some even in bed

As visions of Sailor Jerry

Danced in their heads

Pyrat Reserve

Had done me in

I finished my nightcap

This is no sin

Soon I was awakened

Up I did dash

Tempted to drink up

A small taste of The Lash

I looked out the window

What I saw gave me stoke

Old Captain Morgan

In a pot still pulled by 8 barrels of oak

He called out the barrels by name

With the same care and skill

The good Captain used

To land the old copper still

Taste Oronoco, try Appleton’s

Drink Bacardi and Zaya

Enjoy Zacapa, Eldorado                     

Savor Diplomatico and Viscaya

The Captain was dark

With a head of cork and wood

With hints of vanilla

I new this would be good

Old like Ron Anejo

Sweet like molasses

He poured himself some grog

I had the same, just different glasses

To the rum bar he went

With a cask full of goods

Many tasty flavors and spices

Ripe fruit and charred woods

Four Square Spiced

For Gidget and the Possum

Thanks good Captain

This is awesome

Kraken for Casey

A flask of Mount Gay for Randy

Rum cakes for Sharon

Even a bone for Sandy

Then he was gone

In the blink of an eye

I’ll be back for mojito Monday

He yelled from the sky

I heard him exclaim

As he rolled out of sight

Happy rum quest to all

And to all, a good night.

Cheers and Happy Holidays from Da’ Reef
