Tim Hortons Coffee Cup ~ a Poem

Don’t spell out trouble

A day is happy

With a Tim Hortons coffee.

I walked past two lovers

Their chuckles seemed forever

Wouldn’t have Tom Jones shake

For snobbing his special steak?

They stayed outside, shared a tall Timmy

Rather than a glass of Bacardi.

Then into the bustling market place

The summer sweat made my heart race

In my hand, a cold, large bubble tea

“No coffee for me.” I said no to Timmy.

I passed a big Asian store

And went back to check for more.

A woman pulls her buggy and frown

In the old streets of Chinatown

I followed her inside

And vendors greeted her pride

Is it coffee today, Mrs. Lee?

She winked, “T’day, Canadian Tim. T’molow, Chinese tea.”

Sip, sip, “umm rè kā fēi,” she said

“Wake up, smell coffee. Dlink coffee instead.”

“Ev’lyday, you see, I dlink boling tea.”

“Tim Holton t’day fol me.”

But you see, Mrs. Lee,

Do not leave Mr. Tim by the green veggie.

There goes hottie Tim again

On a shelf no one can explain

Can’t be full; must be empty

Some dude’s brain gone rusty

Tim stood tall and ain’t shy

Friendly, familiar, you know why.

Why leave poor Timmy

Amongst boxes of gummy?

Is it to make others smile

Spotting Timmy along the aisle?

Tim Hortons like it for sure

A name you can assure.

Tim Hortons Coffee ROCKS hard!

And there goes Tim Hortons

In the park with some morons

Blue bin, green bin, you fool

Timmy hidin’ between rocks ain’t cool.

Big Tim loved hockey and recycling too

It would just be nice if you do.

At the Square, a Lady did care

Nathan Phillips met Tim Hortons there

The famous plaza and the cup

Dated Tim with the birds for a stop.

Soon left and she beckoned

Was she going for a second?

But Lady, gulls don’t drink coffee

Caffeine drug makes flyin’ ain’t free

Though Timmy makes a friend

Spare them a doughnut blend

Timmy! Timmy!

Is just for you and me.

Tim Hortons Coffee VALUES gratitude.

Three elves played wishin’ well

On a Tim Hortons cup they dwell

Threw in stardusts for doughnuts three

Then, wished three more times for coffee

C’mon elves, win it for me

A silver car and a ride for FREE!

Tim Hortons Coffee GENERATES one's day.

On cold winter day, I visited a thrift store

Friendly Timmy was there once more

Shapely vases flirted at Tim

One whispered, “Hey Tim, where do I begin?”

Handsome cup, but it’s not for me

Oh Timmy, you’re everywhere I see!

      Marites, this is a wonderful and kind way to tell us to please pick up after ourselves. This world is at the stage where recycling bins are nearly everywhere. And yes, the advertising really is getting Tim's name out.

      Timmy is calling, steaming hot. Did you have Tim today or did you not?

      Thank you my friends and I am glad you have enjoyed this poem of Tim Horton's coffee and cup.

      I spot Tim anywhere and

      if I see more of Tim often,

      be it lying on the tracks,

      resting along a forest trail,

      inviting at an entrance to a cave,

      or just sitting over there,

      yes, over there,

      I'd like to tell you

      there will be a

      Tim Hortons Coffee Cup poem

      part II.

      Cheers and I love you all! :)

      I really like this poem! It would be fun to see it as a video with music in the background and the words running across the screen with the pictures. Bits of this poem makes me laugh. This hub is a treasured one. Thanks!
