Cup'a Joe
© By Grady L. Duncan 
6/23/01
On any given morning,
the first thing I must do,
is to open up the coffee,
and put some on to brew.
To talk to me is fruitless,
so save yourself the trip.
I remain totally oblivious,
until I've had that first sip.
Then I can get dressed,
and wake the family up.
Before I start the day,
I must have a second cup.
I head for the bathroom,
brush my teeth and comb my hair,
before I go to the cafe,
where friends will meet me there.
I order up more coffee,
and drink a cup or two,
while we tell all the yarns,
that we ever knew.
Then, it's back home,
to drink one cup more,
while the wife outlines,
all the honey-do chores.
I head for the bathroom,
as I often did.
The wife hollers out.
"Be sure to raise the lid."
By ten o'clock, I'm pooped,
and my back's beginning to ache.
It's time to stop and rest,
and have a "coffee break."
I barely make it 'til lunch,
with which I have "Iced Tea,"
but with my dessert,
I've gotta have coffee.
When we have friends over,
and we generally do,
we sit around and chew the fat,
and drink a pot or two.
Each day is no different.
It's all the same routine.
I have a need for coffee,
like a car needs gasoline.
Lord, I thank you for blessings,
as the Bible says,
and one other thing.
Watch over Juan Valdez.
