Peppermint Mocha: A Highly-Caffeinated Love Song

for Jodee

Double double, toil and trouble,
Filter drip and carafe bubble.
By the ringing of sleigh bells
Something awesome this way smells!

Peppermint Mocha, now you're here,
Bringing joy we often lack.
All year long while you're away,
We sit and cry and hope and pray
That soon you will come back.

We like you like we like our men:
Rich and dark and steamy hot.
Say that you've come back to stay.
We'll drink you, pot by pot.

Gulp by gulp or sip by sip,
Sleek French press or filter drip,
Make it strong or make it weak.
Drink it all midwinter bleak.

Clutch warm mugs in chilly hands.
Drink them singly or in bands.
Dear, warm drink, I'm glad you're mine.
Peppermint Mocha, you're divine!
