How Do You Like Your Coffee?

In a reply to Jenny Lee Young’s “reply prompt” of How do you like your coffee? when we were writing limericks for Poetry 201: October 2015, I wrote:

I like my coffee cold-brewed and strong.
And for one thing I very much long.
That I could have written
the words that were driven
to come to you, right–surely not wrong.

She wrote a beautiful serial “Gospel Limerick“.

It delighted me because (a) it worked, (b) it came directly to mind on the spot with next to no editing, and (c) she liked it.

Happiness!
