Coffee in Heaven

Coffee In Heaven

You'll be greeted
by a nice cup of coffee
when you get to heaven
and strains of angelic harmony.

But wouldn't you be devastated
if they only serve decaffeinated
while from the percolators of hell

your soul was assaulted
by Satan's fresh espresso smell?

Love Mr Agard's work. Didn't know this poem. Thanks for sharing. You must listen to him read 'Half-Caste'
