Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and Gravy

Coffee in the morning opens my eyes,
Romancing my senses right from the pot;
Dark, aromatic and heady surprise,
That will leave my sleepy taste buds distraught.
Mellow, provocative, uplifting tea,
Though not as potent as coffee’s caffeine;
Jolts my palate invigoratingly,
Without being bitter, pungent, or mean.
Juice has its place, both acidic and sweet,
Teamed with bacon and eggs, muffins or toast.
Various cereals of oats or wheat
Are tasty, but not what I love the most:
Smother biscuits with thick sausage gravy—
The savory train to heaven for me!

Some old friends reminded me just how much I like biscuits and sausage gravy. Reason enough to write a poem!
