The Rule of Malheur Twelve is simply this:
It can’t be ordered as a final beer,
And if this aphorism you dismiss,
More Malheur Twelve is destined to appear.
So if one buys a bottle for the table
The person who is buying the next round
Consults the bottle list and isn’t able
To find beer more beloved or more renowned.
Thus, when you’re late to join the cheerful crowd,
And all your friends have reached beer saturation,
Someone who asks what beer will leave them wowed
Will send a bottle in appreciation.
The Rule may seem a brag and not a warning,
But you will understand it in the morning.
