How bad is coffee
how bad is it for my bones and brain
does it sharpen or dull
strengthen or weaken
will you make me shake or seize up
blunt my senses
or help them breathe better?
The fact that I take sugar surely shortens my life span
a pollution of the soul
a voluntary poisoning
all in the seeking of sweetness.
My teeth cry out
clamouring for a well deserved respite
from this sickly invasion.
Yet I can’t seem to cease sprinkling this toxic taste bud tingling torture
over all my drinks
and I sometimes wonder
whether I should have never started drinking coffee
as it does me no good.
