Ode to Caffeine, by Heidi Barrett

March is National Caffeine Awareness Month. To celebrate the non-prescription drug that keeps many of our families going, our regular contributor Heidi Barrett penned the following poem. Pour yourself another mug, and enjoy!


Let us all get together in the Month of March and celebrate our love for caffeine

Some like hot

Some like it cold

Some like a syrupy frozen concoction in a cup

Back in the day Truckers and College Students alike pop No Doze to

Stay awake all night

The young and old nowadays sip Rock Star and Red Bull to their delight

Some people jitter and shake when they partake

Saint Drogo of Sebourg Patron Saint of Coffee and the Ugly,

and my patron saint

If I don’t get my coffee, I will turn ugly

I whisper terms of endearment to my steaming cup early in the morning

Coffee you are my best friend, I love you

Let us all get together in the Month of March and celebrate our love that for caffeine


What is your favorite caffeinated beverage, and how much do you need in a day?
