His bluff and bluster in the early days of the marriage--
Bacchus's heady stuff covertly supporting his carriage;
Tipsy pals, prompting and running riot all over the town--
Like all good things ending, one day, come tumbling down.
Left praying his 'punch' line would still land him the pay-off
But, as 'slated', she lands the punch and has the last laugh!
