Chosen Words

Coffee

Coffee is a pleasure drink,

It starts out as a bean;

If you miss your daily dose,

You can become very mean.

For many folks, it’s on their mind

As soon as they awake;

To most of them coffee is

The first thing that they take.

Coffee has the caffeine we need

To start us on our way;

It wakes us up and gets us ready

So we can face the day.

There are times one cup is not enough

To keep us sharp for long;

Before you know, you realize

That 4 or 5 cups

Are gone!

It most likely is not good for you,

With all that caffeine, I know;

But, I can tell you now my friend,

I’ll never let it go!
