What a pressing experience indeed,
who came up with this ingenious idea?
Oh of course, the French Connection.
No fancy electronic buttons or
stainless steel reflections, just a simple
cylindrical tube of glass and silvery
metal casing to plunge and produce
It stands tall and proud to receive
my bean each morning with hot spring
boiling water to squeeze delicious
flavor from each bean squatter.
Oh thank goodness for the French,
so noble and worthy, to invent
such a beauty and entice this bean
lover with their brilliant savvy.
I lift my cup this early morn to
all coffee lovers, and let there be no
mourning, for the bean is made to
come alive with the Frenchman’s
cute invention, Oh don’t take my
French press away or else this poet
will surely die, on any given morning.
For it’s my savior on my dull
mornings, as wine is in my nights
and without either to keep my hands
steady, I would never be able to write.
