Two offerings:

Shaken he stirred sour faced. 
Got straight up a twist of his head
and back on his feet
His marriage on the rocks
but nothing kamikaze
Must find a tonic to make up
(33 words)

Name your poison let's have a duel
It is a kamikaze tie, one on liquid courage
Twist straight up as it may be the last call
Prove your elixir of youth is intact
(33 words)
