Pub With No Beer 2020

It's lonesome away from your pint of pale ale
The South Aussie Government's new Epic Fail
is hotels to serve you schnitties with cheer
but a parmi's no fun in a pub with no beer
The bottle shop's open, and we reckon that's beaut
we take our booze home and get pissed as a newt
But the Government tells us, with almost a sneer
we can only have food in the pub with no beer
Do they think that as soon as they let us have grog
we'll all go missing in alcohol's fog?
There's something more sly to this story, I fear,
why they let you serve grub in a pub with no beer.
