A tribute to the amphetamine of day
Caffeine in all its glorious forms
It’s legal it’s potent
Nobody’s hounding you
Scrutinizing your intake
Be it social or on your own time
Beyond espresso and the americano
My ultimate favorite
Chocolate covered coffee beans
I can’t get enough
I love the jolt they give
Throughout the day
In addition to boosting energy
And stimulating metabolism
Caffeine’s a most effective pain killer
And that’s the story I’m sticking to

Line, your poem rings true for me, as well. I wrote a poem about my coffee (caffeine) addiction but haven't published it on the Soup. Maybe I will someday. Best of luck in the contest. Hugs, Janece.
