King Coffee

May the drink that I love,
Rule by divine right!
Wean the wine drinker
    from his grape;
You are far better than wine!

Song sung in Greek by a coffee vendor who went from house to house selling cups of black coffee (1690)


  1. Oh I thought you were writing poetry until I read the fine print.

  2. I'm nowhere near that talented. I'm quite gifted at typing in other people's creative talent though.

  3. Is this one of your photos?

  4. Gale - Most of the photos here are mine, but this one is not. I have done some Photoshopping to bring out the steam and I gave it a somewhat strong vignette, but that's all I did for the photo. It was a really good photo to begin with.
