I've Bought a Bottle of Jim Beam

And when my grandfather,
who was always fond of sour mash,
passes away
I'll put back half the handle.
And when my grandmother,
who loved the ocean more than anything,
leaves this world,
I'll go about drinking the rest.

In the event that they die at the same time
I will strip naked and swim to the bottom of the sea.
