A humorous look at the revitalizing effects of coffee in the morning.
Ode to Coffee ……

Alarm clock goes off,
Is it morning; not night?
I drag to the kitchen
Then turn on the light.

With tired red eyeballs
And fingers that shake
I need stimulation
To keep me awake.

Ahhhh! Here’s the coffee,
Elixir of life!
Such blessed refreshment,
The ender of strife.

The freshly ground beans
The sound of each drop
You can’t feel this blissful
At some coffee shop.

It’s steamy and fragrant,
A joy to the nose.
No morning’s complete
Without two cup o’ Joes.

A home-brewed confection
Delight to the tongue
A pure taste of heaven
Hosannas are sung!

My eyes are now open!
My heart’s pitter-patter!
The caffeine’s now surging
Into my grey matter!

“Hey World, I’m ready!”
I shout to the day.
I hit the steps running;
Get out of my way!
