Pink and Bubbly

The bottle says

Champagne,

But she says,

“Champion.”

Oh,

First thing upon waking,

It makes her feel bubbly.

She wobbles out of bed,

Giggles and then says,

“What the fuck

Then leaves with an open bottle.

No need for food,

When she is what she drinks;

And that's a bubbly
