Life is a Cup of Coffee (Which is Like a Woman)

Life is a cup of coffee–
good to the last gulp.
Sometimes it’s sweet,
at others, bitter,
& can cost as little or as much
as we are willing to pay for it.
In basic black, it comes,
or in all shades of complicated cream,
but, like any good thing,
it runs out too soon.
