Caffeine Limerick

Every now and then I like to respond to one of Mad Kane's Limerick Prompts. Her latest challenge is giving a first line and asking readers to finish it. This week it was: "There's a fellow who loves his caffeine..."
Here's my entry.

There's a fellow who loves his caffeine
And his handy espresso machine
He blames, with conviction,
His mother's addiction
And claims he's inherited the gene.

I found this great picture to illustrate it, a machine worthy of a coffee addict's love.


  1. None of us seems to have inherited your coffee genes. I wonder why that is?

  2. Maybe the heartburn, in your case. Your brother is not opposed to a strong cup of coffee to wake him up properly in the early morning, and your sister actually makes coffee to drink in the evening. Strange child. They just don't drink it every day...or they might. I suddenly realized that I would have no way of knowing that.
