Welcome To Starbucks

Flavor Out Of This World

Welcome To Starbucks

The first thing that we’d do, as you step onto the scene

Is grab a cup of coffee from the vending machine

Not just any joe, but, the best of the stuff

A New Iced Apple Crisp Oatmilk Shaken, from Starbucks

See, it’s autumn here on earth, and the one thing we love

Is getting close to nature, wearing sweatshirts and gloves

Sitting by a fire, with some cinnamon spice

Iced lattes are a treat, making fall feel nice

We’d take our local brew and head back down to the lake

Share some fresh baked muffins that my grandmother baked

Listen to the music, like the leaves in the trees

The real things that make life down here, as good as it seems

Over at the stadium, we’ll watch our favorite team

Duke it out and fill us with those old college dreams

Learning that there is more to life than just what we see

You’re proof that there is life out there in our galaxies

    A really sweet poem!

  • Well done. I think I need a cup of coffee now! (BTW: Is that alien doing his best George Costanza impersonation? And I think it is ironic that none of the figures have hands.)
