I Do Not Buy My Coffee Out
I do not buy my coffee out,
I make it ’stead at home.
A little soy milk, not too much,
we can’t afford the foam.
Some days I use the same grounds twice,
my husband doth protest.
But it still smells like coffee,
I’ve had café Cubano,
espresso Italiano too.
I know good coffee, but I settle
for my own homebrew.
And, yes, I am a mother,
so I often drink it cold.
A warm mug or my babyboo?
I choose my dear to hold.
But still I drink two cups a day
or my headache gives a warning.
So could you spare a cup, my friend?
Thank you. Good night. Good morning.
