I'll Take My Coffee Black Poem by Connie Yost


I'll take my coffee black
Sweet'ner by the pack
On breakfast I don't slack
More than just a snack
Pancakes by the stack
Flipping takes a knack
Syrup is a fact
Did someone mention plaque
Put the butter back
No cream alas-alack
I'll take my coffee black.

    I hear ya. Black coffee gotta have it. But I gravitate more towards Menudo than flapjacks. Lol. (Report) Reply
