Sometimes you just want a noggin
A swift one that just hits the spot
Something to just wet your whistle
A quick one just for the road.
The trouble alas with a noggin
Is a noggin is never enough
You think your not up for a session
But the noggin just sets you off.
You can’t beat the taste of the first one
The feel as it slips down your throat
But it just sets you up for the next one
The noggin will just start you off.
It’s hard to remember the noggin
Will just be the first of a few
You just popped in for a noggin
What’s a poor drinker to do?

Haha, Excellent. Noggin is a strange word and not one I use at all, but I was familiar with the meaning as a slang term for the head, but not the one for a small drink until I looked up the word. Great Poem. 🙂
Hi it’s not a word in common use as such but immediately evokes a drinker from a particular social class and age group. Noggin for head is probably even less used( so many other terms: conk, nut etc.

I’ve seen Noggin used in American TV shows when they think that it’s something us Brits say 🙂
I’m not sure noggin for a drink gets used outside of the golf club.
