Dirty Water

It is sold by the cup full

And usually poured from a pot

Full aroma, decaf, breakfast blend

It’s best served piping hot

Most people drink it early

It helps them start their day

Others drink it twenty-four seven

Downing countless cups along the way

From a simple brew to the exotic

They come in a cappuccino or latte

Whatever your heart, it desires

Maybe expresso, mocha, or frappe

As caffeine goes, it has it

Giving a jolt to keep you awake

Some tend to drink it to excess

Addicted? - you it will make

Me? I can’t stand the stuff

All it is…. is dirty water

Caffeine, I get all of mine

From something cold, not hotter

So, all of you coffee freaks

Keep on drinking that nasty brew

If it makes you happy, drink it

Dirty water side effects will get you!
