Morning Coffee Catastrophe

The morning seemed quiet when I got up from my bed,
The air was still, as I shook the cobwebs from my head.

I walked slowly into the bathroom to wash my face,
Work must be done and I must prepare for my daily race.

Brushing my teeth and running water through my hair,
I know this day might be good and the weather is so fair.

Streams of sunlight peer through open shades,
I walk to the kitchen, barely awake in a daze.

Open the cabinet for the coffee just inside,
I notice it's empty and then I almost cried.

I gather up my clothes, in a such a terrible rush,
The coffee helps me focus, gives my brain a good flush.

I jump out the door with the speed of lightning,
Into my truck, without coffee my day is frightening.

A few brief minutes passes by as I blaze into town,
My trucks roars down the street with my gas pedal down.

I see Starbucks ahead and my mouth is watering,
Can't wait to taste my coffee for this morning.

Roll down my window with such hast to order my prize,
I ask for a large hazelnut coffee with joy in my eyes.

I make it to work a few minutes early today,
Knowing that I made it, but only halfway.
