Coffee thoughts

my eyes were growing furry coats
i peered through layered lashes
and thought i saw some billy goats
with peppery moustaches

from out my mouth came rabbit teeth
just like my younger sister’s
and to the South (just underneath)
some honorary whiskers

my nose was flat and wiggly
i snuffled in the dirt
just like that little piggly
emblazoned on my shirt

but, now it’s time to say goodbye
to wooly-minded thoughts
and think, instead, of pumpkin pie
and bubbling coffee pots!
