The drink of the gods!

*/* */* */* */* */*

It streamed through my window,

One late summer night.

The room was illuminated.

It was blindly bright.


It was soon gone in a flash,

But to my dismay,

It was just the beginning.

I’d know the next day.


A loud bang at my door,

Woke me from sleep.

The locks couldn’t hold.

Now, there wasn’t a peep.


There by the door stood

Three little gray men.

I wanted to run

For my life, but then…


What can you show us?

What should we think?

I offered them coffee.

They started to drink.


They drank the full pot

And wanted some more.

Then two more gray men

Burst through the door.


The looked left and right, then

Walked to their men.

Each held out a cup

And hollered, “Again!”


They drank more than their fill,

From morning to night.

Then took all my coffee

As their craft, then took flight.


“Wow”, I soon thought

With the shake of my head.

I shut down my Keurig

And went back to bed.
