This is my order:
Any drink that doesn't taste
Like coffee at all.

Friday afternoon<br />We sip the fresh brewed coffee<br />And dream of escape.<br />

We like the brew cool<br />With ice cubes in a "go cup"<br />That's how NOLA rolls

Coffee oh coffee<br />The first great morning taste<br />Strong and full flavored<br />You are a taste of home <br />

A true companion<br />To clasped hands in fall's first rain<br />One café au lait

Why is there decaf?<br />In my opinion, that<br />Defeats the whole point.

The comfort and solitude<br />of the morning ritual.<br />The steaming mug.
