Mr. McGhee

Cover Image

Each afternoon

Old Mr. McGhee

Would sit on his porch

Sipping black coffee

He only drank it black

No sugar, no cream

And no fancy grounds

Just plain coffee bean

He had one single mug

He had no need for more

He’d rinse it each day

And put it back as before

Looking out from his porch

He saw Widow Crabtree

And wondered each day

Why he didn’t prefer tea
