    I like all that info, contradictory, double meanings in this small poem.
    I had to look up Lucozade, but when I did, it revealed all implications..
    Well done!

    Yes, I wondered how widespead that old "Lucozade aids recovery" advert was. This also causes me to ask how widely the Corona fizzy drink brand was known.

    Corona as beer is better known I think. There's even a Corona street here, in a town near where I live.
    I wonder how the people living in that street are feeling about that name.

    Not as bad, I imagine, as the people who live in Cockshot Hill, a street name in a town near to where I live.
    I've not heard of Corona as a beer, only a brand name of soft fizzy drinks some years ago. I don't think the name is still around these days.

    Corona still going strong as a beer down here, but - is it a poem or a puzzle?

    Well, it's in the poetry section, so there's your first clue.
    It's a senryu (5-7-5 syllables), but I've messed it up because the middle line has eight.

    I understand that
    haiku sing of scenery
    but senryu donít

    senryu mock folk
    who confuse seven and eight -
    have I got that right?

    I learned what Lucozade is. It's an interesting marketing angle they decided to choose. I don't understand why Corona has clear bottles. I think if you have to add a chunk of fruit to a beer, it may not be very good beer to start with. I don't drink anymore but it's nice to totally trash a brand of beer like Corona. Sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. w

    Short and very sweet.
    I enjoyed that personally. Would make a decent opening stand-up line.
