Word and Question 20 - now with added apologies

 Here, ma'am, try this tasty wine sample.
The portion, you'll find, is quite ample.
Do you like... Holy smokes,
Here come dozens of folks!
For free wine upon you they may trample!

Word: ample
Question: Should I tell someone about this?

I am entirely late with this one (marvelously hosted by Enbrethiliel at Shredded Cheddar), and it's all my own fault for trying to play at all in the kind of month I knew I was going to have.  And even now, I'm only good for a limeric...  

The scene, for those of you who may not have such things where you live, is a table or small kiosk set up inside a supermarket or warehouse store where customers are offered samples to induce them to buy products they might otherwise ignore. (Although I'm pretty sure that free wine isn't legal.)

The first time I published this, I forgot to also apologize to my (two) readers for not posting anything for a month.  Mea Culpa!

Am very glad that my "word" triggered this happy limerick! Well done!

I didn't realise it was a limerick until after I had read the last line . . . so I had to go back and read the first four lines again, in the proper meter. =)

We get free wine at our supermarkets, too, though I never wondered about the laws until now. LOL! I do know they don't offer it to anyone who even looks like a minor, but then again, they don't exactly card everyone. Hmmmmm . . .

As always, your poem is a delight, Ellen. =) Thanks for playing!
