A debate that has often perplexed me
Is the choosing of coffee OR tea
You must pick one or the other, they cry
You cannot enjoy both, surely you lie
For coffee is the drink of the do-ers and getters
Tea is the choice for the scholars or betters
And as if this wasn’t already enough
There’s endless varieties to be had of this stuff!
For tea you can drink black, white, herbal, or green
Even ones that taste like coffee, which seems quite obscene
It can be in packets or come loose in tins
If you don’t boil water in a kettle it’s the gravest of sins
Coffee prefers itself to be light, medium, or dark
You can have it plain or add milk, whatever your lark
So knowing this, it seems quite insane
Why anyone would willingly choose both; it’s hard on the brain
But who says coffee can only belong to one set?
While tea is for another? There’s no need to fret
For the answer to your opinion on what’s in my cup
Is quite simply this: shut the hell up!
