Fireball

Cat walking away explosion fire

Plenty of men have offered wine,
But I find it less than invigorating;
The high I feel is much too mild—
I need something more stimulating.
Then he showed up looking wild,
Dragon tattoo on proud display,
Gave me a bottle filled with fire:
Cinnamon whiskey here to stay.

  1. Fireball actually has anti-freeze in it and is illegal in some countries. Jack Fire has no anti-freeze but it does cost more.

  6. My kids drink fireball. Not for me. I love these lines: “Then he showed up looking wild. Gave me a bottle filled with fire” Also the tattoo…I might just try it!
