A song in the key of life!

"Oh, I dream of coffee with the dark brown hue,

there's something special in that magical brew.

 

It slaps you in the face and jolts you to life.

It smoothes out rough edges, and brings calm to strife.

 

It's your only friend when your not feeling so well.

Without it, you struggle, and you're caught in a living hell.

 

Higher brain function suffers before you turn the pot 'on'.

Common sense and reason seem impossible to call upon.

 

And most of your comments given when not under it's effect,

are often an unfunny joke--without the thinking reflex.

 

Oh, sure, you'll do your best to sound rational and fully awake,

but, we all know, trying anything computerly is one hell of a mistake!"

Thanks, zb, and the smell of coffee drags me stumbling toward the pot like a drowning man wishes for evaporation on a MASSIVE scale!

Coffee is not one of my greatest passions, but in this witty poem I can see that it is one of yours. I enjoyed reading your poem and I found it quite humorous. Without coffee a lot of people would feel down. But I loved it! Your poems are hilarious!
