Homo alchoholis

Wouldn't it be terrific
To live in the Palaeolithic
And get stoned?

Or be tormented
By the fermented
Ears of corrupted corn
Poured from a Neolithic horn?

Or be in fine beer fettle
And show your mein host mettle
In the brazen Bronze Age?

Or worship the doddery divine
With the juices of the vine,
And be all the rampaging rage
In the any old Iron Age?

Wouldn't it be terrific
To be Homo alchoholis
In the Paralytic?

Wouldn't it?

Well, you made me laugh and I enjoyed every stanza, each from a different period in the life of our planet. Cleverly rhymed. :)
