Marylou's Coffee

An Ode Marylou’s

Marylou, Marylou
There is no coffee quite like you.

In the morning when I rise
I see the look in my husbands eyes

I know ‘tis only the coffee of which he dreams
Hot or frozen, topped with whipped cream.

He says “I’ll be back” and dashes out the door.
Headed for that grand ole’ coffee store.

Cute girls behind the counter? Simply no match!
For the coffee that they poor, now that’s the real catch!

Hazelnut, Maple Walnut, Cinnamon Candy,
Strawberry Shortcake, Coconut Cookie, any or all are just dandy.

Bagels, Muffins, Pastries galore.
Refill please? Yes, one more!

A large Frozen Minty Lou is my fave,
Of it all day is that of which I rave.

The accompanying cinnamon stick I hold so dear
I love you Marylou! Thank God you’re near!

Now that I’ve consumed enough calories for one week.
I’m all revved up and my outlook no longer so bleak!
