Random Poem:

What? No decaf boy?
aforbing

Swarming around the joint
 1
like maggots on a carcass,
 2
four or five boys
 3
whose only mission
 4
is to keep your late
 5
night coffee cup filled.
 6
 
 
They dart in and
 7
around
 8
servers and trays of
 9
munchies and post-bar
 10
consumers
 11
in a mad dash
 12
to assure that you
 13
never see the bottom
 14
of your mug.
 15
 
 
Mostly content with my meal
 16
I enjoy the hell out of my
 17
conversation and can finally
 18
hear every word that my girfriend
 19
is saying to me.
 20
I am thankful that my hearing
 21
has remained unscathed
 22
from loud guitar
 23
riffs and the lungs have
 24
survived the smoky smut
 25
of an almost extinct entity--
 26
a place where 90% of the joint
 27
lights up happily.
 28
 
 
The coffee boy brigade
 29
cracks me up, but my smile
 30
fast fades to a frown...
 31
a decafinated boy
 32
has not been hired.
