An Ode to Coffee

O, black and potent beverage each morning that I rise you give me greater leverage you make me strong and wise O, elixir of higher thought rejuvenate my mind I percolate you in my pot through dark beans that I grind With sugar some would sweeten you and lighten you with cream but black and strong will be my brew like women in my dreams O, steaming dark deliciousness please keep me wide awake and bring me higher consciousness upon my coffee break © Mike Wise 3/23/14
