The Intent Behind This Poem Could Be Romantic Or It Could Be Laziness. I Like To Think It’s A Little Of Both

I like a hot beverage
Almost any time of day
And if it’s not made how I like it
I’ll drink it anyway

My preference is coffee
But to avoid confusion
I’ll happily drink tea
And accept a fruit infusion

Some drinks can be refreshing
And some quite stimulating
While herbal ones I find
Are often more sedating

Sometimes I like to think
That I am a connoisseur
And it’s true that there are certain brands
I claim that I prefer

But I’m really not that fussy
No that is quite untrue
And my favourite drink of all
Is the one that’s made by you

      I can only assume that hot beverages mean as much to you as they do to me…

    Mrs Scribblans would definitely have opinions more on the side of ‘lazy’ I think, regardless of a last verse attempting to spin it.

      Mrs Scribblans would be wise to have that opinion

    Coffee or tea— always. Made by anyone anytime… as long as I get my fix!

      Hasn’t proved as effective as I would have liked though. Still made quite a lot of my own hot drinks today…

      That’s why I don’t need sugar in my coffee

    Pulled it out of the fire with that last verse James. Was Mrs Proclaims reading over your shoulder?

      My wife prefers not to read my poetry as a general rule…

        My wife has a simple opinion of everything I write. ‘Too long. Too many long words.’

        Sometimes my wife pretends to be interested, but it can be very hard for her to conceal the boredom

      I can’t say I’m not a little hurt, but I respect the position you have taken on this. It is important to have boundaries.
