Maybe I won't drink tonight,

won't hold my glass up to the light.

Perhaps the cork will stay intact,

the bottle resting in the rack.

A little tipple does no harm,

bears no grudges, tweaks no alarm.

Just a small swig to help me sleep;

save me from counting endless sheep.

Oh, it's still too soon to go to bed;

Well … only another sip of red.

No point now to keeping a drop,

Accept it.  Its too late to stop

Nice one Alison - effective wordsmithing to make a half serious/half humorous point that lots of us will connect with
