Permission For Caffein - Poem by Saiom Shriver

She once decided to
ask God for permission
for each cup of coffee...
she would say a prayer
and then flip a coin
asking that its fall
be Godguided.
Over 3 days she
got 9 no's in a row.
The odds of that
happening on a random
basis are 1 in 512 or
2 to the 9th power.
She obeyed for those
3 days. What did she
learn? Not to ask
again since she was not
surrendered to the
Years later she's
still drinking 1/4 cup
a day
