The scent is like magic
The scent of the coffee
Helps open my eyes
As I lay on the pillow
Too weak to arise

I struggle to move
And get myself up
The smell is like magic
I must get a cup

But first I must conquer
The steps out of bed
To get to the bathroom
My feet are like lead

I’m clean and I’m ready
To head down the stairs
One time I could do this
Without any cares

Each step is a nightmare
Each jolt strikes a pain
I’ll never drink Harvey
Wallbangers again
