Drink to a Long Life. Not!


Libations of red wine may be
The secret of longevity.
Experimenters indicate
That red wine has this potent trait.
When it is drunk by men and rats
It neutralizes sweets and fats.
The fish who sample it add speed
And much more brain cells than they need.
For red wine has resveratrol,
A beneficial chemical,
Which in sufficient doses can
Prolong the average life span.
The rub? You'd have to put away
A hundred bottles of wine a day!
