With the sound of the coffeepot
And the alarm clock shreiking WAKE UP!!!
I set them to go off at the same time.
(Its a good thing the pot has a timer
I need the encouragement most days)
I stumble into the living room
With the first cup of coffee.
I look through the DVR
Hoping for a new Daily Show
Cause I can use a laugh at 4am.
I sit there for awhile comtemplating the universe
Or failing that, reruns of MASH or The Twilight Zone.
One hour and several cups of coffee later
Its time to brave the shower.
Pack a lunch,
Count the bus fare,
And then go out and face the world.
