A sonnet, with apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Sam’s, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love your coffee rich and black,
Especially on days when caffeine the home doth lack
Your Zeke’s custom blend is my saving grace.
I love your staff, and the feel of the place:
From Tripp’s Terrace to the art on the walls,
The open layout and quiet corners to take calls,
How everyone always has a smile on their face.
I love your mission and slow, casual pace.
I love your omelettes, fluffy and light;
I love your muffins (the blueberry one is a delight!);
I love being here to chat or to work.
When meeting friends, this is place always right
And I promise to never invite any jerks.
