Starbucks Poem - Poem by Tom Zart

COFFEE

Around 1615 coffee came to Western Europe
Raising a huge controversy and warning cry.
Some said it was intoxicating and poisonous
And any whom consume it will die.

No one knows how coffee was discovered
Though it is said its effects were known before A.D.575.
Persian armies carried and ate its seeds for strength
Which in battle could decide who would perish or survive.

Arabs where the first to brew its bitter seeds into a drink
In a attempt to make it taste better and easier to consume.
Soon the new beverage spread to Turkey and Europe
As the world became addicted to the harvest of it's bloom.

Thank God for caffeine found in coffee
Which helps multitudes make it through the day.
Like ancestors of the past it helps energy to last
And for it's stimulant we are eager to pay.

    Dear Lillian:
    Number 41 passed on the CDs from Tom Zart. Thank you for thinking of me. I am thankful for your efforts to honor our brave military personnel and their families. America owes these courageous men and women a debt of gratitude, and I am honored to be the commander in chief of the greatest force for freedom in the history of the world.
    Best Wishes.

    Sincerely,

    George W. Bush


    UNYIELDING HONOR WORLD WAR-III

    ULTIMATE SACRIFICE


    Our men and women give the ultimate sacrifice
    When they pledge to defend our flag.
    In hot spots throughout our world
    They defeat our enemies who brag.

    Most say their prayers to their own private God
    To protect and bring them safely home.
    It’s our job as patriots and Americans
    To let them know we love them as our own.

    Think of all of history’s heroes of freedom
    And what they gave up for “Old Glory”.
    Nothing has changed for over two hundred years
    As our soldiers continue the story.

    Those rows of white crosses in manicured fields
    Tell the story of ultimate sacrifice and love.
    Always remember all we treasure and enjoy
    Are because of our soldiers and God above.


    SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF WORLD WAR III


    Our sons and daughters serve in harms way
    To defend our way of life.
    Some are students, some grandparents
    Many a husband or wife.

    They face great odds without complaint
    Gambling life and limb for little pay.
    So far away from all they love
    Fight our soldiers for whom we pray.

    The plotters and planners of America's doom
    Pledge to murder and maim all they can.
    From early childhood they are taught
    To kill is to become a man.

    They exploit their young as weapons of choice
    Teaching in heaven, virgins will await.
    Destroying lives along with their own
    To learn of their falsehoods too late.

    The fearful cry we must submit
    And find a way to soothe them.
    Where defenders worry if we stand down
    The future for America is grim.

    Now's not the time to fight one another
    Or kiss our enemy's cheek.
    All through history it remains the same
    The strong enslave the weak.

    May God continue to bless America
    Refusing evil, the upper hand.
    It's up to us to stay resolute
    Defending the liberty of Man.
