My Romance with Coffee

what is it with coffee shops and romance?
when I first met my wife we drank coffee
there wasn’t a party we didn’t dance
as a boy wooed girls with Mister Softee

when I was single I drank more coffee
but I also smoked a lot back then too
and I looked like Jesus said Aunt Sophie
those days are long gone now I’m living true

I love ice coffee and coffee ice cream
don’t like instant coffee rather Singles
when I do drink coffee with milk no cream
instead of doughnuts we’re eating Pringle’s

coffee is the love of many I know
as for me that extra cup I’ll say no

    Caffeine will lay you down after it picks you up. I restrict my intake of the stuff. Nice write.
