Lately, I've been Bi-Caffeinated...

Monday Morning Ode to Caffeine

Oh coffee, whose bean we roast,
then grind, then pour hot water
over... thank you for you benefice.

Oh tea, whose leaves are dried,
then bundled, then slipped
into more hot water, thank you
for your benefice and love.

Oh caffeine, helper of my mornings,
kind restarter of my afternoons,
think fondly of me, and of my kin.
Let us enjoy our kick start
without malice, without effect.

Oh world, which starts too early
for this late night poet, be kind
to me and let the caffeine production
never cease. May the words
from my computer screen,

and the meditations of my heart,
be deemed acceptable forever more.
