coffee in a cardboard cup

The trouble with the world today

It seems to me

Is coffee in a cardboard cup.

The trouble with the affluent society

Is coffee in a cardboard cup

No one’s ever casual and nonchalant,

No one wastes a minute in a restaurant,

No one wants a waitress passing pleasantries,

Like ‘Hiya Miss. Hiya Sir.

May I take your order please?’

The trouble with the world today,

It’s plain to see

Is ev’rything is hurry up.

It’s rush it through.

Don’t be slow…

It’s coffee in a cardboard cup.

So much brew-haha over absolutely nothing really.

I really don’t care what my cup looks like. What matters to me is what’s in the damn cup.

As much as my clowns who were/are baristas tell me how awful it is to steam eggnog, I offer no apologies for being so happy that Eggnog Lattes are back…because yes, god loves me and wants me to be happy.
