Caffeine High

He works like a well-oiled machine
But only when filled with caffeine
No power within

The caffeine is just a smoke screen
He won’t even stop for cuisine
So he’s string-bean thin

    Yep. I have the coffee habit - used to have to have a cigarette with it too. As for the "string bean thin?" No way, Jose. Got a chuckle out of this one. Love, daver

    Ya should have put this under 'Limerick' Carolyn, cause it's funny...then again; it's kinda mind altering, thinking that most of us know a soul or two just like your description here ! Great write dear poet ! Have a wonderful week dear friend...much love, james
