Random Poem:

The Perks

The sands of time are merely grains of sugar
That dissolve into the coffees of endurance
Scalding, sweet creamy lattes that all too quickly turn to tepidity
A costly treacly sludge of sqeezed grounds more promised upon than actually delivered
A draft of the ultimately undrinkable
From a wakefulness that quickly passes
To enervation, exhaustion and opportunity lost
Civilization at last buffeted, artfully propped and sorely bereft
