Sometimes a good cup of coffee
Is enhanced by the froth on its top.
If the coffee is strong
And the drink’s not too ‘long’
The flavour will come bursting through.
The froth can help hold the flavour
It lingers there on the tongue
But the coffee has to have substance
It’s no good if drunk on its own.
It can be the same with writing
A rhyme can push it along
You can jolly it up with rhythm
But if nothing is said
Your words will fall dead
They won’t stand the test of time.
