Ouchie! - Poem by Michelle Tiddy

I've just burnt my tongue
On a cup of seductive espresso
What should I do? Cover it in jello?
Dip it in ice, or a bag of frozen peas?
Stick it under the tap, this hurt I must ease!

Darn that addiction
to caffeine I have, the raging need
That makes me gulp in one long drag...
Not pondering the results of the actions I take
Now I won't taste the dinner, that later I'll make

The little tastebuds
Are squealing in pain, I'm rolling my tongue
Over and over again, nothing will help
It serves me right I guess, I should stick
To bloody cold water, and nothing else!

    Sorry to smile about your pain
    I seem to have the same refrain
    Here sits my cup of Joe
    I better stop and drink it slow
    or maybe get the ice
    and make it cold on Marci's advice
