Today's prompt was to write a snarky parody ha!
A frappe and not a latte?
What is this whipped malarkey!
What happened to real coffee?
Has everyone gone softy?
The Americanos, double espresso -
so many coffee shops and hey presto!
A concoction of fluffy drinks -
they've got nearly every pick -
except ah, the real thing
to make your tastebuds zing!
Coffee nowadays is just a prop
not an elixir that hits the spot,
a selfie declaration
of a new trend obsession.
Non-caf, de-caf, flavoured, iced -
I don't care, just make it nice!
