The bean’s the scene, potency gleaned
It’s the dark daily grind by far, har- har!
A buck’s a deer, yet scales appear,
What do mermaids have to do with stars?
Now I do insist on non-instant
For getting into hot water is tough
And granted thirty will leave me quite quirky
But a venti is never enough.
It’s derision, this double vision
To work uphold, I must first upend
It’s a blip, a drip, a tip, a sip
Hello darkness my old friend!
Hmmm, maybe I do need more coffee…
I feel quite caffeinated … a rush of morning. Love the way you have played with rhymes here.
Love the successful playfulness here – twinned with the S&G ending – stylish and terrific too…
I smiled throughout, thanks.
what do mermaids have to do with stars? Indeed…need some coffee though!
This was a delight to sip aloud. 🙂
Smiling ear to ear right now. Great use of rhyme throughout and borrowing “Hello, darkness, my old friend. Bravo. Great ending.
This makes my heart pump with vigor and excitement!!❤️ Lovely!!
Well, well, well, I’ve often survived only thanks to my coffee, but I never thought of writing an ode to it! This poem makes me very happy – even if it’s never quite enough…
I felt the skip in your step throughout this. The caffeine worked wonders!
I’m a tea drinker…with milk, caffeinated, every morning or I’m not very nice.
Really fun…and loved that last line!
