He thinks he’s set for the night,

A full coffee cup’s in sight…

Restorative made

As anti-sleep aid,

Four espresso shots—just about right!

Five creamers barely color,

This medical something-or-other…

Coffee lukewarm

Does him no harm,

The caffeine makes it worth the bother.

A spoon in the peanut butter,

He wouldn’t risk near his mother…

This “free protein”

Since childhood has been,

Applied in one form or another!

–Jonathan Caswell
