Which lines? I don't see it.
Well....
Starting with "Baby that preacher gave you in the spring" ... "with a Bible around his neck".... Etc
Lines going all the way back to the meta-physical poets...
Whoops... Hang on...

Edit
.. It all hinges on that line "without a little Barleycorn"
Where the trials and travesty of making alcohols are reflected in the effects of it... Again, read some meta-physical poetry!.

OK, it's all about elegy/ play on words / conceit... I actually don't think you need this stating! 😉 BUT, ... The effort and work of making alcohol and the intrinsic need to work, .. Versus (compared to) .. The escape from consuming alchohol, the devotion/need to escape from the humdrum of life, .... To the futility of not being devotional!
