The Java Junky's Litany

The Java Junky's Litany

It is through coffee alone that I set my mind in motion
It is through the essence of the bean
That thoughts acquire speed
Nerves acquire jangles
Hands acquire shakes
The shakes become a warning
It is through coffee alone that I set my mind in motion

I wrote this originally back in the very early nineties, before the Web, and now I find that a very close variation on it has become a Web Meme. I wonder if the meme is derived from my original, or whether it was invented independently.
