Our first stop, dear reader, into things that I hate
Involves a good drink and its worst freaking trait.
When I wake up most morns, and get dragged out of bed
I can only look forward to what lies ahead.
I walk into the kitchen, I grab my best mug,
Turn on the machine and I brew my choice drug.
It's a wonderful liquid, this coffee, this joe
Providing some warmth and some much needed glow.
But then after a bit, like ten minutes or so
The taste starts to waver and gets well below
An acceptable quality brew I can drink
Makes me want to chuck the whole thing in the sink.
By the time that I get to the very last quaff
This drink I'd once loved is now making me cough.
What had happened to it? What a strange small effect
To be tasty one sec, and then trash in the next.
'Cause it turned something great into something so poor
This is first in my list of the things I abhor.
