An Ode to Energy Drinks

Nebuchadnezzar had his golden statue. I have my tower of power in the form of a Rockstar Coconut Pineapple Energy Drink. Thus, as it is written in the Book of Bookstooge, chapter 3:
To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the aluminum image.

In honor of this momentous occasion, I have caused to be composed an Ode, worthy of a rockstar.

Caffeine as Nature Intended

Energy drinks, oh how I adore thee
With every sip, I feel so energetic
Your caffeine content is just what I need
To get through the day, it's so therapeutic

Rockstar Coconut Pineapple, my favorite flavor
It's like a tropical paradise in a can
The blend of coconut and pineapple, such a savior
It's a match made in heaven, what a grand plan

Some say caffeine is bad, but I beg to differ
It's a natural stimulant, just like sugar
And when mixed with other ingredients, it's a lifer
It gives me energy, it's real, not just a figure

So here's to energy drinks, my source of power
Caffeine as nature intended, let's raise a glass
To Rockstar Coconut Pineapple, my sweet flower
Thank you for keeping me going, for that I commend and even bask.

The above ode was composed by my faithful servant, the AI Paragraph block. It is truly a good servant and I feed it cookies on the weekend.

    1. Yeah, you are a heretic.
      I suspected as much when you didn’t love the Incredibles, but now we have incontrovertible proof!
      If it wasn’t for all that hard work I’ve already done today, I’d burn you at the stake right this minute. Lucky for you I’m tired out with all the commenting I already did.


            1. Yeah, my commentometer started running low about 0630 and I’m not sure it’s going to recover for the rest of the day. I have like 8 reviews to write, so if I’m lucky I’ll do 2 😀


    1. Hahahahahaa. Gotta love it! 😀

      Seriously though, these “ai” thingamajigs still have a long way to go. I look at it as a fun tool right now. We’ll see what I think in a couple of years….

    1. I had an iced chai yesterday at a coffee house. Sat outside and wrote in the shade while sipping it. I felt very decadent.

      But energy drinks are like work horses. They get me going 😀


                1. Chicago has become one of the cities where a political body has decided that rule of law no longer applies. So they do what they want and the criminals do the same and the poor citizens are the ones who die :-/


              1. 2-3 am. The most beautiful time of day. You can walk the streets imagining that all of humanity has been exterminated . . .

                Don’t bother with banks anymore. Just throw a chain around ATMs and drag them away.

                1. So I assume Lord Skynet can count on your vote in the next election then? Those dominion electronic voting machines aren’t going to hack themselves after all 😉

                  Isn’t technology great? Portable banks. Wonderful idea!


                    1. I don’t think I’m going to be needing this Lord Skynet fellow anyway. I’ll just let him twirl around in his lonely orbit while I stay acquainted with the night.

  1. Never a Rockstar have I drunk, I do play their mighty games tho. Grand Theft Auto Vice City and 5 and Read Dead Redemption among my favorites! Good on AI for writing this gem of a poem I can now retire.

    1. Good luck finding it. I found them in my local grocery store, for about 2 weeks. After that, that flavor disappeared and I had to order it off of amazon. Which is ridiculous, sigh.

      but it tastes so good, it’s worth it.

    1. So, there have been 2.
      Once, back in ’09 or ’10, my mother bought me and my brother these “natural” energy drinks. They were green tea based and they were horrible. I still drank them, hahahahaa.

      Recently, I had a coupon for CVS and the only thing they had at the time was ZOA, another “healthy” energy drink. I don’t remember what flavor it was supposed to be, but since I had paid half price for it, after I had drank about half the can, I just poured the rest out. It was disgusting.
