I’ve just been served coffee
‘succes’   it’s not too bad at all
theo is a waitress
bringing a steaming cup

she’s seen a few in her time
‘though clearly she’s still young
happy in her job
but you can see concern

no it’s not the customers
there’s something else there
it’s a mild frown
perhaps her child has a bug

or maybe it’s just the fret
about where her life’s taking her
if only she knew
she’d founded this coffee company
