Limerick Ode To Espresso & Cappuccino

I was alarmed to learn that I missed National Cappuccino Day on November 8th. Then again, every day is Cappuccino Day in my house. (If I didn’t have my own machine, I could never afford my cappuccino habit.)

But all is not lost: Today, November 23rd, is National Espresso Day.

Close enough.

Limerick Ode To Espresso & Cappuccino
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Espresso alone doesn’t please me.
You must add something more to appease me:
Steamed milk, lots of foam,
And you’re just about home.
Just make sure it’s not bitter. Don’t tease me!

    I feel the same way about my tea! Love your clever limericks. I must try this form once I get my fill of haiku/haiga.

    Oh, this is delicious. Am a hardcore coffee-addict, so could relate to every little bit, Madeline Begun Kane! I loved this…

  9. Esspresso with dark brown sugar will be enough for me! You’ve prompted me – think I might…

    I use to work in a coffee shop. One gal wanted a triple espresso! There was barely enough room to make a double…

    I wonder how long she stayed awake?

    You and I could definitely drink together! Hopefully some day… either a bar or a coffee shop. :)
