Carbs & Caffeine

By: Laura Alford

Carbs and caffeine
The American Dream’s
Running on
Carbs and caffeine

Feeling slow?
Feeling sluggish?
Eat some sugar
Coated rubbish.
Got a project
You need to finish?
Have a Trenta
It’s the biggest.

Milk chocolate
Is a twofer,
For the motivated user
Diabetes a spectre
In the future,
Unless I get on
The Biggest Loser

Carbs and caffeine
The American Dream’s
Running on
Carbs and caffeine
Carbs and caffeine
The American Dream’s
Running on
Carbs and caffeine

I’ve tried to quit
Don’t think I ain’t,
But rice and grits
Fuels up my tank
I’ve tried exercise
Pushups and planks,
It don’t’ seem to matter
My clothes all shrank

Biscuits and gravy
With a side of pancakes,
Washed down with coffee
Keeps me awake
Some energy shots
In a protein shake,
Choke down some meds
For this blinding headache.

Carbs and caffeine
The American Dream’s
Running on
Carbs and caffeine
Carbs and caffeine
The American Dream’s
Running on
Carbs and caffeine
