Just Say No... to Caffeine!

Every time i hear some pinhead parroting Nancy Reagan's
trite, useless little mantra "Just say no to drugs",
the first thing i think of is all the young new moderns
packing out the Starbucks and the line-ups of SUVs,
cars and trucks idling their engines at the Tim's
on the edge of town, conjuring memories
of when i had a studio just down the street
from a methadone clinic.

You want an idea for a horror movie?

Open it with CNN breaking the news that some plant virus
has killed all the coffee trees on the planet...
and that there is only a week's worth of coffee left
on the planet.

Then we all watch the fun as drug addicts all over Europe,
the US and Canada go through withdrawal.
