Good Coffee Strong Coffee and I Like Chocolate

 Today Poetry Friday is at My Juicy Little Universe
Be sure to visit and check out all the great poetry posts!

I'm a huge Starbucks fan and lately I've also fallen in love with a local coffee shop called Hansa coffee. They have an amazing cold brew that I love with some almond milk and raw sugar mixed in. Knowing that school officially starts for me on Monday, I thought some back-to-school teacher cartoons might be fun.
Here's one by Mark Anderson that is absolutely perfect!

And to go along with this sweet cartoon, here's one of my favorite coffee songs from Jars of Clay. After talking about starting the school year and getting writer's notebooks going, I really love the idea of a Favorites tab in notebooks. Or a heart map section where kids can identify their writing territories and usually favorites fit into this. I could write a few things about my trips to Starbucks, the people I see there, my favorite drinks, where I like to sit, which stores have the best baristas. I really could go on and on. 



"Coffee Song"

Call it obsession
Call it fanatical
But I am not trying
To make this a spectacle
I have this craving
Justifies behaving
I really need some of that

Ooo, good coffee
Strong coffee
I need to have some
Ooo, good coffee
Strong coffee

Ooo cappuccino
Double espresso
I need something with
A really big kick
You ask me about creamer
You ask me about sugar
I tell you those things make me sick
With my...

Ooo, good coffee
Strong coffee
I need to have some
Ooo, good coffee
Strong coffee

Maybe you want a similar favorite poem-song that's a little more student friendly? How about an ode to chocolate? 

Here's another back-to-school comic by Mark Anderson!

And here's a chocolate song from Disney's Choo Choo Soul that always gets in my head....

"I Like Chocolate" 

I Like Chocolate

I like chocolate sauce with chocolate ice cream,
chocolate cake with chocolate frosting,
chocolate milk with chocolate cereal, 
chocolate cupcakes, chocolate milkshakes

Do your dance now, do your chocolate dance
Do your dance now, do your happy dance
Do your dance now, do your chocolate dance
Do your dance now, do your dance now

I like chocolate
I like chocolate
I like chocolate
I like chocolate

Do your dance now, do your happy dance
Do your dance now, do your chocolate dance
Do your dance now, do your happy dance
Do your dance now, do your dance now 
Do your chocolate dance

I like chocolate
I like, I like chocolate
I like, I like chocolate
I like chocolate

I like chocolate sauce with chocolate ice cream,
chocolate cake with chocolate frosting,
chocolate milk with chocolate cereal, 
chocolate cupcakes, chocolate milkshakes

I like chocolate
Do you have any songs about your favorite things to share?
If you are back to school or going back to school, 
I wish you lots of good, strong coffee and chocolate!
