Triple Shot


Feel the eyelids drooping

Can’t stay awake

Haven’t had my coffee

It’s almost afternoon

Could go back to sleep

Take a little nap

Instead I do a triple shot

Get caffeine in the veins

Coffee Ghazal

Struggle to find a word worth repeating   coffee

Drink it from my favorite cup   coffee

 

It was once an undiscovered bean

Finds honor now in our daily routine   coffee

 

Explorer John Smith after drinking with Turks

Drank in the captain’s galley  from a demi cup   coffee

 

When the Europeans brought it to US

Some said yuk give me tea not   coffee

 

Others celebrated and wanted the brew

Roasted bean over a hot skillet fire   coffee

 

People sought out the beverage

with spices liqueurs and assemblage   coffee

 

Boston’s The Green Dragon served it too

out of that house a revolution brewed   coffee

 

Look at what 400 years can do

Wordshophop ghazal is through   coffee
