The personification of the coffee bean

Beans to You

Pulled violently from the shelf I've known

Far from the fields my seed got grown.

Tossed like trash into some metal cart

Leaving friends behind, oh my aching heart

Kidnapped for a price of another's creating

A grocer's scheme for swift moneymaking

Forced to take a trip on a rubberized conveyor

My neighbor, some dead, smelly, egg-layer

The inhumanity of it all brought me to tears.

Uncertainty for my future heightened my fears.

My vision was lost, as she carried me out

Her brown paper bag, caused a blackout.

Chicken and I, with the other captives

Thank God, she used paper instead of plastic.

My comrades and I, stuffed in the trunk

With the poultry dude and his odorous funk

This dark, foreign land frightened us all

As it started to move, you could hear us bawl

Traveling on bumpy roads, down rolling hills

With anxiety causing a bad case of chills

Once in her kitchen, I was pummeled

Making this coffee bean, quite disgruntled

Where metal teeth ground me to dust

My atom scattered into specs of rust.

My ions were savagely assaulted

And burning hot water had me scalded

Reducing my granular form to liquid

Was even more painful, than predicted

Out of the hot seat, poured into a cup

While armchairs, get their story written up.

Sadly, a bean's life forsaken

For three brainless chairs left vacant.

With no personality traits possessed

Couldn't pass a basic intelligence test

Director chairs three, can't even talk

Everyone waiting for them to squawk

Pretending to be the center of the scene

They can't compare to this coffee bean

No one home, to enjoy my java

Here ends the coffee bean's saga
