Me And My Caffeine
Author: Ben Laney

vinebar

When I wake from my dreams
as the sun is rising up
There is only one thing
my brain is thinking of
So don't be in my way
if you know what's good for you
Because to start my day
I need my hot cup of brew

Hey don't get between
me and my caffeine
I can be mean
before I've had that daily bean
If you like your liver
And you're attached to your spleen
No don't get between
me and my caffeine

Now I am really nice
on that my friends would agree
But please heed my advice
if my friend you want to be
Should you ever stay here
I'm giving you fair warning
It's better to steer clear
of my mood in the morning

Hey don't get between
me and my caffeine
I can be mean
before I've had that daily bean
If you like your liver
And you're attached to your spleen
No don't get between
me and my caffeine

------- Author's Notes -------

Oh, you would rather tangle with a whole HERD of those Tasmanian devil things than to get between me and my "Joe"! And, now that I'm down to only one or two brain cells left, it takes a good cup or two to start me feeling amiable. After that, I just might let you live! Haaaa! Haaaaa! Haaaaaaa!
Have a good morning Kids, Ben

Terrie*, I am a man you don't want to....

Terrie*, I am a man you don't want to know before I gulp down my morning cup of "joe". Yes, have that pot boiling hot, then don't get between me and that bean until I've got....my fill of caffeine! I should wear a cap with a BIG yellow caution sign on it, huuuuuuuuh? Thank you from the bottom of my cup for your comment, I really enjoyed it and I'm glad to know you like my little rant about caffeine!
Steaming Regards, Ben

Stacey, of course you're smiling because you're

Stacey, of course you're smiling because you're sitting there at that computer screen with your veins all full of that good CAFFEINE! It does make it easier to smile, doesn't it, girlfriend? I am thankful to know you read my writing while sipping on your cup of "Joe". And your comment made me smile from my head to my toes! Thanks soooo much, I do appreciate it! Keep Sipping!
Best Regards, Ben

Joyce Ivy, could it be that my.....

Joyce Ivy, could it be that my humaness is showing, because I need a hot shot of caffeine to get me going? And, as far as coke goes, I will not drink coke unless it's the caffeinated kind, the kind that gives a good jump-start to my twisted little mind! Haaa! Haaaaa! Haaaaa! Thank you very much for your comment, I am pleased to know that you can relate to the power of the caffeine bean!
Tip that cup ALL the way up!
Warm Regards, Ben

Barb, yeah when I wanna wake up....

Barb,
yeah when I wanna wake up,
I gotta head straight for a cup....of caffeine
Forget about the alarm
give me a pot strong and warm....of caffeine
She's alright, she's alright....caffeine
How's that for a parody of Eric Clapton's "Cocaine"? Thank you very much for your comment, I really do appreciate it. And I am glad to know there is a soul out there who understands how just a little bit of that bean can turn a bear into a purring lion in a matter of minutes! Haaa! Haaaa! Haaaaa!
Roaaaaaar, Ben

BEN I UNDERSTAND

that cup of coffee in your hand..
but it's something I can't stand
that is why I choose coke, for my drinks,
cause that coffee, oh it stinks...
no, i'm kiddin it smells good
it just doesn't taste, like I think it should...
you drink your coffee, I'll drink my coke...
and maybe we won't go up in smoke.
from all this caffeine, that we drink
I guess that's just how I think...lmao
DO LOVE YOUR POEMS

Joyce Ivy, a little UNDERSTANDING goes...

Joyce Ivy, a little UNDERSTANDING goes a long way, doesn't it? I guess I didn't mention that I doctor up my bean with some good sweet chocolate, raw sugar and a dash of the moo juice. The reason being that I don't want my caffeine to taste like COFFEE! Haaaa! Haaaa! Haaaaa! Oh yes, I do like caffeine REALLY well when it tastes like coke, too! Thank you soooo much for your understanding, I appreciate it! Now, when you laugh, and spray COKE out your nose...run backwards so's it doesn't get on your clothes! Haaaa! Haaaa! Haaaaaa!
Kind Regards, Ben

Joyce Ivy, when you're spraying coke out your no

Joyce Ivy, when you're spraying coke out your nose, please, please don't spray your fellow employee's clothes! That really would be crude, and, some would think, very rude! Hey, I'm glad you missed them. Just remember to run backwards really fast when that happens. Haaa! Haaaa! Haaaaa! My profile and e-mail address are posted in the forum, by the way. Just wanted to let you know. Take Good Care!
Best Regards,
Ben
