Refreshments Are Available!

  'A COFFEE' you said. 'Of course, sir!'
And you lurched off down the train.
I huddled dry-lipped in my corner -
But you didn't return again.

'A coffee' you said. 'A pleasure!'
Your manner was most polite
As you hurried away on your mission -
But you never came back that night.

'A coffee' you said. 'At once, sir!'
And you bowed as you closed the door,
And you went on your errand of mercy -
And you never came back no more.

And although it's a week last Wednesday
Since my stomach and I were caught,
I still feel a raw little ache there
For the coffee you never brought.
