"Ode to Coffee" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on November 9, 2013

"Ode to Coffee"

Some take you black

Some take you tan

Some take you sweet

Some take you bland

I take you in my hand

Kick back and relax with you my bean

If i don't get you early enough, "Eric smash, Eric mean"

Donut doubt my love for you, my Colombian queen

I'm hopped up on you, seduced by caffeine

The sun only shines once your swimming in my brain

You leave remnants of your love on my teeth, you stain

Now I could avoid that yellow tint, if i could just shoot you into my veins

But... your'e hot steaming sex in a cup from you I can't abstain

You always pick me up when i'm down

You keep me regular when your'e around

Every morning I take a dip in your dark waters, you never let me drown

Perked up with you in my cup, we dance on your scared grounds

      Well, I'm no "Hustler," but being bullet-proof may have been nice for Larry; lol at your "genetic forebears!" Very peppy piece,too, appropriately enough. Well done, my eloquent friend.

      Yeah I stole that from pop culture... I like to think of my self as if Dr. Seuss, Larry Flynt and Sylvia Plath had a threesome and I shot out. I'm crude, ha. But anyways thank you very much and all your kind words are reflected back.

      Gret poem Eric, I can really relate to this. I ran out of coffee two days ago and as it is 45 minute drive to the nearest store, I decided to go without. I even resorted to drinking tea, but that was disappointing. I missed the wonderful aroma, and pick me up it gives. But today I went to the store and resumed my relationship with the perfect blend.....mmmm.
