COFFEE AWARENESS

COFFEE AWARENESS

Of coffee I’m aware,

I like it strong when it’s there…

Espresso shots six

My current fix,

To yawning beyond repair!

I know they say that’s bad,

Shocking to the system a tad…

Must stay awake

And no nap take

For losing the job would be sad.

I’ll have mine black and mean,

 Or with creamer, milk or cream…

Just keep it dry,

I’m a teetotaler guy,

On O.U.I. I’m not keen!

COFFEE TIME

COFFEE TIME

Nodding off at his beginning,

Between times of greeting and grinning…

He held off until

He was far too still

And resolve to stay awake was thinning.

It took maybe three or four tries

To turn the thing on (poor eyes)…

The maker on floor

Made it a chore,

Which button to push—SURPRISE!!!!

This blend was very strong

Four scoops of coffee got along…

Without milk–ICK,

But one won’t be sick,

By quitting time, you’re going strong!

THE DROOPY EYELID LIMBO

THE DROOPY EYELID LIMBO

The droopy eyelid limbo,

Wake up and arms go akimbo…

Nodding off with ease

Then startled by a sneeze,

Solutions are relatively simple!

Toothpicks in eyelids work great,

Until the picks lacerate…

Strong coffee is nice–

I prefer mine with ice–

And cream to help it taste great.

Walking around pumps the blood,

Chewing gum just like a cud…

Use fresh each time,

‘Though ruminating’s fine–

Just don’t lay down in the mud!

THE NEXT GUY….

THE NEXT GUY…

 

I drink up the day-old coffee,

And sometimes it tastes awfully….

Like it’s been there a week

Would somebody peek

And see if they need more coffee!

The next shift after mine,

Two days a week does fine…

He uses five scoops,

I do loop-de-loops

It really does kill my sleep time!
