A Spot of Bad Luck for the Meioses

[This one defeated me, but I'll post it anyways. Meiosis is not the same as litotes; I wish I had known before I started!]

Have some wine. The Meioses?
Remember them? On rocket skis?
They hit a wall at 90 Gs
(Hardly guaranteed to please).
The impact rocked them like a sneeze.
Although it burst their arteries
(A little bit) and scraped their knees,
And hardly helped their allergies,
They made it all seem like a breeze
When they poured themselves upon the trees
Like tinsel, or like strawberries
In a jam too red for comfort. Cheese?
