ODE TO A BASIC COFFEE POT

WE LIKE OUR BASIC COFFEE POT
BUT NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT IT’S GOT
WE LIKE IT MOST FOR WHAT IT’S NOT
IT’S JUST A BASIC COFFEE POT

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL
TO LEARN TO USE THIS BASIC TOOL
IT CAN BE DONE BY ANY FOOL
THEY KEPT IT SIMPLE, THAT’S THE RULE

SO IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A BREW
AND THUS ENJOY A CUP OR TWO
THIS BASIC POT’S THE POT FOR YOU
IT BREWSAND THAT’S ALL IT CAN DO

IT DOESN’T TELL THE TIME OF DAY
OR OTHER MESSAGES DISPLAY
AS MORE EXPENSIVE MODELS MAY
IT JUST BREWS THE BASIC WAY
