My Morning Coffee

My Morning Coffee

A Poem by Prathama Panigrahi
"

Have you had your morning coffee today?

"
A cup of coffee I love 
Every morning I wake up 
I add an extra shot 
And drink it piping hot! 
While I blow away my cigarette smoke. 

Ah, the attitude of the morning cuppa!!
Is divine and out of the world 
Its slightly grumpy 
But undoubtedly strong 
Gives me the kick that I need 
What a morning feed?!?!

I was once complimented by someone 
'You look sexy in the morning 
With an extra strong coffee in one hand 
And a f*g in another!!'
O for all the wrong reasons 
I love the morning coffee season!

I would guess you're sexy with or without the coffee and cigarette but this piece certainly is visual and a delight to read.

Thank you King:)
I'm not a big coffee drinker, but find it amusing that this is the poem I settle on this morning. I'd intended to sleep in, since I have the day off, but that didn't happen, damn it. Anyway, this is one of those poems that rouse a chuckle from me and remind me that all poetry doesn't have to be so flippin' serious. Kudos.

I agree. Coffee is life in the morning. Strong coffee to awake the mind. A very good description of the need for a good cup of coffee and a cigarette. Thank you for the excellent poem.
