Coffeeshop Pretension
Chalk to blackboard menu
Showing off the days pretensions.
Setting customers up stumbling
Over convoluted names.
To the growing satisfaction
Of the flannel-clad baristas;
Softly fingering their beards
While making known what is
And how the way they grind their beans
Is technique learned while touring Spain.
How the way they boil water
Comes from ancient Mayan lore.
How their coffee is in fact
The only coffee worth the drinking.
How their coffee is in fact
The only coffee one can taste.
So the boasting goes unceasing
As the tip jar
While they’re handing over drinks
That taste the same as all the rest.
