September 29th marks a special day, NATIONAL COFFEE DAY. You did need a good reason to go to Starbucks, right? (It exists...therefore I go...) Savor your coffee today, every drop. Have some coffee cake or some coffee ice cream. Call that friend and treat them to a cup. Tip your favorite Barrista a little extra today. Grind your own beans! Sneak in a little Bailey's tonight...Just enjoy.
To honor a favorite brew
I'll espresso a poem for you.
Percolate up some steamy prose,
For the drink that stops the dose.
Pour me a cup of strong "Joe"
Fill my mug to almost over flow.
No sugar in my special blend,
But creamer, I like to amend.
Vanilla bean or Hazelnut taste
No drop I dare not waste.
Mr. Coffee, my morning routine;
Bring it on--that jolt of caffeine.
What can bring me over this hump?
A coffee break time in need
Now wired 'till afternoon deeds.
On any corner one will find
The place with the favorite grind.
White chocolate mocha, no whip
A Frappachino, green straw to sip.
I'm pumped through my evening reserve.
Until Kona comes breezing on through
A carafe full, with dessert for two.
Now, it's the time to unwind
But sleep is not something I find
Could it be the java O.D.?
Maybe de-caff next time for me. CV
