A cup of coffee –
Black like your eye if you don’t
give it to me now!

As sip my morning coffee right now, pushing away the cobwebs from sleep, I believe I shall find a way to have this haiku placed upon a coffee mug (along with credit to the author).

Oh, thank you, Doug! Enjoy your coffee and am glad you didn’t need to slap anyone to get it 😀

Don’t mess with your coffee, that’s clearly what you’re saying. 😀
Or do so, cuz I do enjoy slapping those deserving — a “harsh caress” as Dr. Jon would say 😀
Knowing the awesome power of caffeine deprivation, I think my more likely response would be a hasty, “Here you are! Would you like milk or sugar with that? How about a cookie?”
A man after my own heart! hahaha!!
Beyond clever haiku! I used to drink raspberry chocolate truffle coffee — but I stopped — because I don’t feel like carrying around my thermos…Ahhh…the good ol’ days! I’m immune to caffeine.
Do you drink your coffee black? Or was that simply a creative exaggeration?
That truffle coffee sounds really good right now! Did you dunk your pop tarts in it? If you exercise pretty regularly, you really don’t need caffeine; I just LOVE the taste of coffee which I drink with cream but no sugar.
So, you don’t drink coffee — ever?
I literally stopped consuming coffee the exact moment I put down my thermos, which was a few months ago (yes, I dunked my Pop-Tarts)
What’s your exercise routine like? Clean and jerk? Snatch? Overhead press? Sumo deadlift…Stiff-legged deadlift?
I like my cup of coffee and would never give that up; hence the haiku. Lol.
Damn, you must weight train a lot! I thought you were talking dirty for a moment there. 😀 Yoga, elliptical and 8 lb weights — very boring and not exciting like your routine I’m sure!
Personally, I use heavy dumbbells — I don’t like using a bar.
Elliptical? Come on! Ditch that and use a jump rope.
You and jump roping! You must have a video of your jump roping routine for us to see; bet you’re really good.
I’m actually not that great at jump roping — I jump abnormally high — which complicates things.
I don’t have any videos, but trust me! It would be very boring.
I doubt the boring part but fine, we’ll just use our imagination. 🙂
I share that coffee attitude LOL
YES! Do you also find that you have to alternate your slapping hand so one hand doesn’t end up bigger than the other? If you don’t, you REALLY should, Richard; trust me on this one. 😉
I’ll give it a try 🙂
Ha ha ha Brilliant
Thanks! You a coffee drinker, Apollo?
No you can’t give me a black eye lol
😦 Lol. I would never do that – your gravatar would never forgive me!
Ha ha ha….you would be punching the back of my head as I never turn around he he he
Oh, there’s an idea — no bruises then! Lol.
No prison life for you ha ha ha
Oh, is that what that was about? I’m much too innocent to understand things like that 😀
He he he
Reblogged this on One Word Whispers.
Haha!!! Love This!!
Ah, thanks Carisa!! I love your blog! xo
Now, that’s what I call a big cup of coffee! Thanks T!! Love Sylvester and Tweety is okay!
That’s color coffee love!
Lol. You drink your Peruvian coffee black, Francis?
ha, no! I don’t like coffee xP! that’s funny because near home grows the “tunki” variety, it won I think recently world best coffee contest in first place. I enjoy much more to taste your words about coffee ^_^
Thank you! You’re so diplomatic! Too nice to be my friend, I think 😀 Yes, I’ve heard about Peru’s coffee; congratulations on the win. xo
hehe, one day I have to try that coffee XD Besos!
Thinking about switching to unleaded after reading this.
No, you won’t — you like being slapped, remember. Lol.
That comment gets three slaps! Hee hee! 😬
Only three? Hmm, I must be doing something wrong!
Bahahahaha! We poets need the stuff man. It’s our addiction!
Yeah, it is! 😀
the beans ground by hand
once the water almost boils
i’ll serve you a cup
Thank you so much! I would be honored to share a cup of coffee with you, sir 🙂
Oh, no. It cost me everything I held dear. The unexpected payback, if you will, was just a little song.
**** Ultimate Iced Coffee ****
Brew espresso in a drip coffee maker; pour it over some ice cubes in a big pitcher that has a cover; put the pitcher in the frige; pour off as wanted, with more ice in hot weather.
On the rare occasions when I want hot coffee, I zap a cup of my cold stuff in the microwave.
Sounds delish! Would love you to be my coffee slave for a few days! I’d even buy you an apron and handcuffs. xo
Funny. And I understand completely.
I’m glad you understand! I really don’t like slapping people around😊
