Lust's Labor's Licked

or
 
Willy in the Rear Room of the Boar's Head Tavern behind Closed Doors

His mistress' eyes of onyx black blank laze,
her lips brick liquorice of venom wet,
her mouth a furnace pitch and grease emblaze,
her throat an ink soot void salts up in sweat;
ere ebon sweeps and prospects tours his tongue,
flicks scarfing Aquitaines of Carménère,
Barolos rich of Tuscanies far-flung,
Riojas bloodstained stored in liquid air;
till rounding oil lagoons in wildwoods thick,
it dives to slate cenote depths earth gold,
and homeward gears on growing hearthstone sick,
to reaches crow inside a wanton cold;
the Devil metal draped enthroned her skin --
full banned from court the licit marriage gin.
