Percolate

Percolate
Born in the Sun

Saved from Birds – Red Blue and Yellow

The humble little coffee bean

is a hardy fellow

 

Grown in the warmth

of a plantation

with 50,000,000

brothers and sisters

 

picked from its parent

it travels for miles

travelling in bags

with no room to smile

 

asked to improve

the heated aqua

and roasted within

an inch of its life

 

Life force captured

in three sizes of cup

and then the final insult

the drop of milk and sugar
