I ponder the force of the coffee bean
Grown somewhere tropical, steamy and hot
Do they know the impact they have on us?
Caffeine-addicts too busy or just rushed
Needing a kick - a hit to start the day?
Drawn by the aromatic smell, they burn
These brown jewels that built empires of yore
Pungent, roasted and reeking of tar.
Beans that feed nations dependent them
Raise my blood pressure and give me the burps
These little brown beans, not so little, no more.

I apologise for ambushing you all with a poem! Sorry! :-)
Thank you so much for all your theories about the sunflower in the hanging basket! I must really have some acrobatic birds here! LOL!
Have a thoughtful Thursday everyone!
