Ode to Coffee

by Jake “Cosmos” Aller

Mistress of sacred love Sacred lady of desire

You start my day
Setting my heart on fire
With your dark delicious flavor

And throughout the day
Whenever the mean old blues come by
You chase them away
With your bittersweet ambrosial brew
Every time I inhale your witches’ brew

I am filled with power, light, and love
And everything is all right Jack
If only for a few fleeting minutes

I love you oh coffee goddess In all your magical forms

In the dark coffee of the dawning day
In the sizzling coffee in the mid-morning break
In the afternoon siesta break
And in the post-dinner dessert drink

I love you my coffee mistress
You are my refuge
From this horrid world

And you are my secret lover Never disappoint me, ever
I’ve never had a bad cup Of that, I can be sure

Even the dismal coffee Served at Denny’s at 3 am Is still sweet loving coffee

Even the farmer brother’s diner coffee Excites me and gets me going
Asking for another cup of divine delight

Coffee always is there
It is always on and piping hot
With hidden dark secrets
Swirling in its liquid essence

Coffee is my last vice
My only legal vice left

Coffee does not cheat on me
It is always faithful, always true It does not turn on its friends

And all it asks in return
Is that you come back
Cup after cup after cup
A good cup of coffee
Is a little bit of heaven
In a cup of dark liquid hell

Coffee is like a drug
But a good drug that does what is should
And never complains

It does not get grouchy It does not hurt you

It does not make you crazy
But allows the muse to come out And play with it

Coffee led to the American Revolution
As patriots drank coffee
To rebel against the aristocratic English tea

Coffee started the London Stock Market
And started the gossip mills running

Every great invention
Was fed by coffee’s sweet brew sweet allure

All the great thinkers
All the great leaders
All were enslaved to coffee’s magic

I sing my praises
Of the great glorious coffee lady

Long may she continue
To be my sweet companion

Long may coffee continue
To rule my heart
And set my heart on fire

I love thee
Mistress coffee
And sometimes I think
You love me too
