Ode To Coffee

bitter black opiate
cup of steaming oil
keeps the gears turning
keeps the inner fire burning
a monk in his brown robes
steaming lactate for fuel
brings friends together
a philosophical conversation
parkinson like diversion
keeps you awake to the light
deep into the burning night
whirring thoughts are no help
I am a fool
for trusting in you

Thanks :)<br />
Depends on the day, but I prefer my coffee black (if I am having something with "milk" then it's soy) - iced soy lattes with no flavor are like heaven.<br />
vielen dank
