To Sip or Not to Sip

To Sip or Not to Sip
True genius
is not found
in a bottle of wine.
That I know.
For no matter how aged
the flavor is,
it remains corked.
But the perception most popular
in the modern mythology,
is that a soul,
as dark as the coffee it drinks
is worth tasting.
Fermented grapes
or coffee beans,
that is the question nowadays.
Such attempts one makes
at otherworldly osmosis.
To make a life
from the product of the little person,
who’s out there picking fruits
or plucking beans
with their nibble little fingers:
it is hard work
to brew another man’s pleasure
(especially on slave labor wages).
Wallow well then
and savor every sip
with:
“ Mmm. A very good year”
or
“ Ahh! Good to the last drop.”
I,
on the other hand,
prefer to avoid such issues,
and the misdirection of selections.
I
drink pure water.
Never filtered.
That will not do.
Oh, no!
From a natural spring source,
Of course.
