Snarling Cup of Coffee    





I like to start my day with a hot cup of coffee

I pound down the coffee

First thing I do every day

as the dawning sun

Lights up my lonesome room


Yeah, but not just a simple cup of java Joe, but a God damn snarling sarcastic smarmy cup of coffee

As I pound down that first cup of coffee

And fire up my synaptic nerve endings with endless supplies

Of caffeine induced neuron enhancing chemicals


I face the dawning day with trepidation and mind-numbing fear

I turn on the TV and watch the smarmy newscasters in their perfect hair


Lying through their perfect blazing white teeth

about the great success the government is having

Following the great leader's latest pronouncements


I want to scream

and shoot the TV

and run out side



Stop the world!

I want to get

off this fucking crazy planet"


The earth does not care a whit

about my attitude problem


It merely shrugs

and moves around the Sun

In its appointed daily run


the universe whispers

in my ear

time to drink more coffee

for an attitude adjustment


And I sit down

The madness dissipating a bit

And enjoy my second cup

Of heaven and hell

In my morning cup of Joe


Coffee Revolutions




coffee cup

Coffee led to the American Revolution<span

As patriots drank coffee

To rebel against

the aristocratic English tea


Coffee started the London Stock Market

And started the gossip mills running

Every great invention

Was fed by coffee's sweet brew

sweet allure


All the great thinkers

All the great leaders

All were enslaved

to coffee's magic


I sing my praises

Of the great

glorious coffee lady


Long may she continue

To be my sweet companion


Long may coffee continue

To rule my heart

And set my heart

on fire


Ode to Coffee




Mistress of sacred love

Sacred lady of desire


You start my day

Setting my heart on fire

With your dark delicious brew 


And throughout the day

Whenever the mean old blues come by

You chase them away


With your bittersweet ambrosial brew

Every time I inhale your witch's brew


I am filled with power, light and love

And everything is al right Jack

If only for a few fleeting minutes


I love you oh coffee goddess

In all your magical forms


In the dark coffee of the dawning day

In the sizzling coffee in the mid morning break

In the afternoon siesta break

And in the post dinner desert drink


I love you my coffee mistress

You are my refuge

From this horrid world


And you are my secret lover

Never disappoint me, ever

I've never had a bad cup

Of that I can be sure


Even the dismal coffee

Served at Denny's at 3 am

Is still sweet loving coffee


Even the farmer brother's diner coffee

Excites me and gets me going

Asking for another cup of divine delight


Coffee always is there

It is always on and piping hot

With hidden dark secrets

Swirling in its liquid essence


Coffee is my last vice

My only legal vice left


Coffee does not cheat on me

It is always faithful, always true

It does not turn on its friends


And all it asks in return

Is that you come back

Cup after cup after cup


A good cup of coffee

Is a little bit of heaven

In a cup of dark liquid hell


Coffee is like a drug

But a good drug that does what is should

And never complains


It does not get grouchy

It does not hurt you


It does not make you crazy

But allows the muse to come out

And play with it


Coffee led to the American Revolution

As patriots drank coffee

To rebel against the aristocratic English tea


Coffee started the London Stock market

And started the gossips mills running


Every great invention

Was fed by coffee's sweet brew

sweet allure


All the great thinkers

All the great leaders

All were enslaved to coffee's magic



I sing my praises

Of the great glorious coffee lady


Long may she continue

To be my sweat companion


Long may coffee continue

To rule my heart

And set my heart on fire


I love thee

Mistress coffee

And sometimes I think

You love me too


No More Coffee Blues









I love coffee

Always have


And coffee has loved me back

But lately I have soured on her

Soured on the whole coffee scene


On the harshness

of the morning brew

And the promises it makes


As I sip of its nectar

Drawn into its lair


Drinking drop by drop

As the caffeine takes over


Rewriting my every nerve

Turning me into a slave

For its perverted pleasure


Yes I love coffee

But I am afraid


Coffee is a harsh mistress

Demanding so much of me


Promising the sun

And delivering the moon


As I drink her swill

Deepening under her influence


I have the coffee blues

Can’t live without her

Can’t live with her


I try

But tea does not cut it

Not really


Booze does not do it

At least not in the morning


Yoga is not enough of a buzz

Nor is the runner’s high


And I am afraid deadly afraid of cocaine

And speed and drugs and energy drinks


And so I remain a slave to coffee

My only legal drug


As I sip another

and fall under

her seductive spread


Once more failing my resolve

To skip coffee for that day

That morning that moment


I shall never be free of her spell

Ever and she knows it

As she beckons me

Every morning with her intoxicating smell


And I come to her

and drink her brew


And become her slave

again and again


Coffee Ya Du






must drink coffee

have every day

the morning dawns

drinking my coffee as I yawn


Morning cup of coffee 




every morning

I drink my coffee

as I contemplate 

the dawning day


watching the news anchors

blather on and on

drinking my coffee

thinking of life


and my coffee

consumes me

overwhelms me

and at time controls me


after all coffee is a drug

and I am her slave

from time to time


Drinking Coffee in the Morning




in the morning

dangerous mood

felling deranged

watching the news


trigger warning

you are screwed dude

end of the world

the end times come


I drink coffee

in the morning




Coffee Pot Killed






His wife has banned my use

by my owner

says he makes too much

of a mess when he uses me


it is not his fault

I want to say

but being a coffee pot

can not speak


and so I am abandoned

thrown out into the trash


and feel very sad

for my owner


who was my friend

he liked me


he keep me going

and I did my job


providing him

with fresh coffee


doing my coffee pot duty

and now it is over


Drinking My Coffee



drinking coffee


drinking my coffee

early in the cool morning

thinking life is fine


everything will be okay

after I drink my coffee


morning coffee




morning coffee


dawning sun 












coffee MGur Poem





I pray to the coffee gods

every cup of coffee

is like a sacrament to me


I pray as I drink my coffee

that it will fill me

with wisdom


and find peace

with my coffee


as I drink

my devotion


Hot coffee



cup of coffee



take coffee with you

Hot hot coffee, makes my day -


Must drink My daily coffee, as the morning dawns - 


With out my morning coffee


in me,  I feel nothing at all -


Electrified Hot Coffee




coffee is the drug of choice

nothing else will do it

as I drink coffee


Hot Coffee


Hot Coffee and Cake




coffee is the drug of choice

electrified circuits

as I drink coffee

coffee and cake



Coffee Patina



hot coffee

hot Hellish Heaven

Essence of coffee

For me it's iced coffee, every day of the year, no matter now cold it is out. I know ... coffee is a diuretic, but I need the caffeine, and I want to chug it to quench my morning thirst.
