Morning delight – Poem – riddle

A bit of a riddle poem … Can you guess it?

Morning delight

Beep of three,
Beckons me,
“Come consume my offspring”

Drink the blood
a darkening flood
of energy for me

Some will cringe
Others grin
As they lift the pot for more

Toss the grains
Paper stained
Start it up again

    An unimaginative guess: coffee? I know, I am hopeless…

    • Tram,
      You’re not hopeless… you got it right!
      I fear it was a pretty unimaginative riddle… My eldest just read it and said “Dad, that’s pretty obvious”

      It didn’t start out as a riddle per se… but ended up that way.

      Happy New year to you and your fam!

  2. My only vice.
    well, except for eating badly, and writing, and blogging and…

    Nah… It’s a Necrophilic pyromaniac snorting the remains of his cadaverous victims straight from the urn…
    You don’t fool me 😉

  4. vampire me, coffee is just my poor victim … or is it? Not sure who has captured whom…
