Daily Post prompt: It’s Valentine’s Day, so write an ode to someone or something you love. Bonus points for poetry!
FUCK POETRY. I originally wrote a series of seven or eight haikus. It was a lot of work actually, but when I went to save it, WordPress had logged me out and erased most of it. What’s posted here is all that was left after WP ate yet another post. I take it as a sign that I’m not supposed to write poetry. This isn’t a haiku and it doesn’t even rhyme, but whatever.
O, divine nectar,
Sweet black joy in a cup.
You are not for everyone;
Only some know your charming wiles.
Away with your drugs!
I need no such stimulus;
Just give me sweet, black joy.
In a post-apocalyptic landscape,
You are the first thing I would miss.
Society can take its electricity and plumbing,
And shove it;
As long as I have you, coffee,
And lots of ammunition,
The world will be alright.
High fucking five.
