One cup of coffee.. every day.. for 45 years..
you have made me bitter, impatient, angry
.. full of heavy metals.... caused ulcer generating acid in my stomach..
drained calcium from my bones
unnaturally stimulated my heartbeat... eroded my optic nerves...and reduced my sight.
Your dioxypurines* crystallize around my joints
jabbing me with pain
making me rigid, inflexible.. both in mind and body
making it more difficult for me to concentrate after
the initial high...
The decaffeination chemicals stink in decaf alternatives
(unless they are saltwater decaffeinated).
I have not always bought organic coffee... and the insecticides in each cup make a poison brew.
The caffein is a diuretic.. stimulating frequent trips to the bathroom. Coffee is also a factor in bladder and pancreatic cancer. Coffee handed out in styrofoam cups contains carcinogenic styrene.
Your bright berries grow in the high mountain
sun..I love you coffee trees
but may I switch to blackberry and blueberry
and elderberry teas.. not teas steeped in leaves
untimely ripped from their mother trees
but teas from berries.. given freely by the bush and vine
Footnote: Many of the above apply to any caffein containing soda or pill
*dioxypurines are addictive caffein in coffee... but even stronger are the trioxypurines, the addictive oxypurines in animal and fish flesh which come from the uric acid or pre-urine in all mammals and fishes
** It used to be said that only a king like Henry the 8th
could eat enough meat to contract gout.
