Hot Chocolate and a Bagel

Every morning I’m used to drinking hot coffee

Its the best way to get the morning blues off me

Today my coffee can was empty, oh boy

How will I obtain my morning dose of joy

Distressed discouraged then I what do I see

The answer to my prayers, it’s a plan B

Instead of the usual breakfast on my table

I'm drinking hot chocolate and eating a bagel

Delicious soothing a nice change for the morning meal

Not my first choice but it’s gaining appeal

I have been dying to find a place that makes homemade hot chocolate...not a powder mix.

I was unable to have caffeine for 34 yrs. It has been another 2 yrs. and still no hot chocolate.

Enjoyed your poem.

You may post poetry in a new group i created called Sparklecity Poetry Group.


Also let me know if I can post some of your poetry on a page called Poets with a voice.


Thank you.

I like my coffee first thing and maybe some hot chocolate at another time. I like you cute little poem, Cheryl.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on January 29, 2020:

Cute poem Cheryl. It wouldn’t be my first choice in the morning either but quite a nice substitute.

Lol Margaret. Thanks for reading.

Cheryl, Plan B seems like it was a great choice. I don't drink coffee. Therefore, your plan B would have been my Plan A.

Your poem made me laugh Cheryl and I certainly like your plan B, which looks so appealing. Excellent.
