While they ponder the latest coffee blends.
The cafe in which they like to converse
is the only safe place to rehearse
life’s frustrating twists and turns
where people clash and money burns
for time itself is high on speed
even the coffee seems to bleed.
New deals start bouncing off the walls
Straight from suburban shopping malls
Stocks and shares like long lost friends
are discussed at length in dividends.
Debates on launching new campaigns
on expanding markets and profit gains
provide Has Beans with reason to gloat
As long as investments continue to float.
It’s a potent mix of great ideas
of inhibitions and deepest fears
With owning a home no longer a given
The Cafe is not a bad place to live in.
Humble Coffee Bean’
