An Elegy to Coffee
I loved it so during my youth
But I certainly have to tell the truth
It made my life happy for a while
Until the day I forgot to smile
Now I can not have it evermore
The aroma, the flavor, the taste galore
The cries and the moans do no good
I’d love to have it if only I could
But if I did, my belly would ache
So I have to renege, for my own sake.
Thought I’d try the elegiac couplets here.
Let me know what you think.
