The Vintage Coffee: Light Humour For The Soul
As the organic Venetian Arabica,
Slided down his longing throat,
The bright vibrant colour, a pinnacle of perfection,
Kissed the nape of his neck on its way down;
Embraced his stomach with great gusto.
His recent fatigued and foggy brain,
Now danced with the ultimate joy!
The tantalising fragrance of his breath,
Met and synergised with the aroma
Of this natural ‘high’, and sweet relief
Could be seen emerging from a glowing smile.
Pete reclined happily in his comfy chair,
As the magic of a much needed ‘lift’, took hold.
Ah! He was alive again!
With an awakened Spirit,
Full aroma inhaled and digested,
He was now ready for Flight BA 216,
Onwards to his destination.
