Harbinger of "instant" coffee With meandering gratification No refuge from the eternal colleague on first A young go-getter at the tender age of three Spousal collisions in the kitchen Jostling for position in front of the kettle The toaster, the fridge, the bread bin And the ever present danger of chores on 'break'.
