It’s Coffee-time

I ain’t at fault a wee bit chums!

If all around the clock is coffee that hums

My mum hauls me over the coals for it

For I fancy coffee day and night with a soupçon of tidbit

My dad coerces me into eating esculents and coleslaw

My beau split up with me saying I smell of coffee, duh!

Clearly, they don’t see the trouble that I go through

When it’s chowtime, it’s coffee-time too

My friends tease me and seize every chance to call me a coffee-junkie

There’s more coffee in my system than it’s blood that I tell them bluntly

Once my hand got slashed, my buddy caught a glimpse and never returned

In lieu of blood it was coffee dripping from my hand that left her stunned

Hear me out, I have a confession to make folks!

Coffee is my fuel and it smells better than your socks

Coffee is my sun, coffee is my moon

Unlike Prufrock I don’t measure my coffee-time in spoon

Is it for pastime, or for some time? I dare say it’s for lifetime

Never mind folks, the java junkie says all the time it’s coffee-time!

Any time is the right time for COFFEE. It's COFFEE O'CLOCK somewhere. Great job of writing about Coffee.

Thank you Hullabaloo22! Coffee is something that everyone loves. So I thought I should write about our mutual love for coffee. Thank you for your precious opinion! :)
