Making Coffee

Making Coffee

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Getting up these dark mornings

Too so cold, it rates with insane

And tho’ I truly love drinking it

Making morning’s coffee’s a bane


My wee dog just lays in bed till fed (snoring)

Not relating to dawn, till well past the crack

I’ve now decided he can make morn’s coffee

For once, he can get off his lazy back


He wagged his tail briefly

After I’d described his new chore

I expect this all to work out really fine

And then there are a few chore more


I showed him the makings in the kitchen

But when I looked down, he was gone  

On my bed on his back, all four feet running

Appears like we both have problems with dawn


Once again, I carried him back into the kitchen

He responded with not even a peep

Definitely no more inclined to make coffee than I

So, we both went back to sleep

You would think, with all the damn kibble we've shoveled out for them . . . my dogs in particular, could at least chase away the damn birds chomping away on my lettuce & broccoli. The ultimate in lazy is when they both wake up from a nap & bark like dutiful dogs should, but they fail to leave the bed! They think they can ward off the wilderness FROM THE BED? God forbid they put a tender tootsie onto the cold concrete patio! Your poem touched a dog nerve (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I really liked this. It was short and funny without being difficult to read. I can definitely relate to not being a morning person. Good job!

As he is, in fact, a dog, I think I would. I don't need much encouragement when it comes to canines.
