A villanelle about Betty and Stella and their coffee shop.
This is the tale of the Coffee Shop Friends;
Friend-Sips the name of the business they own.
Open at dawn though at dark service ends.

Betty and Stella are hip to new trends;
they do this so their shop will be well known.
This is the tale of the Coffee Shop Friends.

They send to Ceylon for all the new blends;
on the computer, that Skype telephone.
Open at dawn though at dark service ends.

Stella got testy yet soon made amends;
Betty was perplexed by Stella’s harsh tone.
This is the tale of the Coffee Shop Friends.

Betty pays heed to the money she spends;
Stella thinks they need not cut to the bone.
Open at dawn though at dark service ends.

Still they are happy with all the shop lends;
hardly a grimace or mid-morning moan.
This is the tale of the Coffee Shop Friends;
open at dawn though at dark service ends.
