I'll Take My Coffee Black


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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
