Death Prefers Coffee

Death prefers coffee over tea
Or so I am told
Due to the late nights of harvesting
The sick and the old

He drinks alone before he goes out
Or so I am told
Warmly refreshing his sinister bones
With Columbian gold

No Grandes or Doubles or modern stuff
Or so I am told
A tiny single espresso for a bony hand
Easier to hold

Death prefers coffee over tea
Or so I am told
On nights when the English's time are up
I wonder, does he drink coffee to spite them?

That would be cold

    TS Eliot: "I measure out my life in coffee spoons." I figure I may need to switch to de-caf when I die so I can stay dead.
