Coffee Time

We have a new coffee pot.
It is very technically advanced.

It has a pot for 12 cups on one side.
It has a pod for a K-cup on the other.

I guess you could have coffee
While you are waiting for your coffee.

Choices, so many choices.
So early in the morning.

It has a timer to start coffee.
I wish I had known that last night.

I finally had a Coke.
You just pour it in a cup.

That will be caffeine enough.
At least enough to learn the coffee pot.

Habits

I gave up coffee for Lent.
The inspiration was heaven-sent.
I survived the headache.
Now I don’t even shake.

It wasn’t the coffee I miss.
It’s the little breaks of bliss.
Now I’m at my desk all morning.
Whether it’s dry or even storming.

I just sit at work until lunch.
I stare at the screen a bunch.
I don’t even miss the caffeine.
I just zzzzzzzzzzz.

Turnaround

I hate my job.
I hate my wife.
I hate my dogs.
I hate my life.

I need something
To set me free.
I need good drugs.
I need … coffee.

Coffee saved my life today.
Caffeine in a paper cup.
Cream and sugar.
My spirits raised up.

My job is great.
My wife is tanned.
My dogs are fun.
My life is grand.

Summer in Dallas

It’s summer in Dallas,
I’m melting inside.
It’s over 100,
There’s no place to hide.

It’s summer in Dallas,
Ice cream man with a scoop.
By the time you start eating,
It’s chocolate mint┬ásoup.

It’s summer in Dallas,
It’s too hot for clothes.
Either draw all the shutters,
Or give the neighbors a pose.

It’s summer in Dallas,
Stay off of the street.
We’ll head north to Plano,
To get out of the heat.

It’s summer in Dallas,
Sun’s burning my head.
It’s too hot for coffee,
So I’m staying in bed.
