The Elixir of Life - A Poem Expressing How I Love to Drink Coke

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

The elixir of life.

Brown syrupy goodness.

My friend, my life line.

I cannot wait to have you

After I stumble out of bed.

The carbonated bubbles tickle my nose.

They bite my throat.

Refreshing.

Awakening.

Caramel color, high fructose corn syrup,

Some carbonated water

and oh the blessed caffeine.

Known by many names.

Soda or Pop

Soda pop

Cola or Coke

Coca Cola.

All say the same thing.

A botttle full of yummy.

Coca-cola in my cup.

Yes, please.

Fill it up.

I loved the first image.

If coke is not paying you, they ought to, I'm off the fizzy stuff but after reading your delightfully funny poem, I could just murder a coke.

I don't drink soda that often, but your photos posted here make me want a coke really bad. It's pretty good poetry when you can convince someone to do this -- the photos really influence me visually.
