More awful than you can imagine!

I once had a dream that filled me with terror,
more awful than you can imagine--in fact, a Beer-Mare!
 
Imagine, if you will, being surrounded by cans,
ice water dripping down the sides, they're so cold, and
 
they're all sealed at both ends, with no way
to get at the golden nectar--and you've had the day
 
from Hell--all you want is to maybe watch a movie.
You purposely avoid the news, because all you see
 
is a constant drum beat of 'be afraid,'
scared of your own shadow--it's a 'fear arcade!'
 
You sit in your recliner, open the case
you just got from the fridge, and the look on your face
 
must be terrible indeed, for the bastards are welded shut.
In your despair, because, understandably, you're off your nut,
 
you break into song, "Ninety-nine bottle of beer on the wall,
ninety nine bottles of beer--you take one down,
ready to chug to town, but ain't no way in to the bitch, at all!"
 
You're totally bummed, your agony face must be bleached white,
you just can't imagine a more nightmarish sight.
 
You wake up screaming, in a puddle of sweat,
walk with dread to the fridge, in desperation, you get
 
out a can, and see the pull-tab, and rejoice to the sky,
for in was only a Beer-Mare--tonight won't be dry!
