 An Ode to Coffee

 

Oh bittersweet nectar of those who would sleep
But choose to stay up to make complete
Those tasks that could keep on going for weeks
Like book reports, studying or working for creeps

 

Oh shiny black liquid that makes my eyes light up
When I take a smooth sip from my Far Side cup
I try not to laugh when I tip my hand up
The sign says "pull" not "push" you "gifted" nut

 

And oh that sweet smell as you brew and steam
made with boiling water and pots and beans
which keep me awake and far from my dreams
I'll love you always black, sugar or cream

Okay you are now taking about my passion in life here and very well done to boot. If one were to cut me I would bleed the sweet liquid that over charges the system. Flooding it with the electical charges that is fondly called caffine. See you have inspired me as well. Good write.

A great tribute to coffee, and one of the best odes to bean juice ive read, and actually the only ode to coffe ive read, which draws me to ponder, there should be more odes.
great flow, and meter, fitting, nice work.

Mmm...I love coffee too...this actually puts me in the mood for a cup. I like the flow, the feel, and the imagery, and overall, this was very nicely done. Clever write!
