It’s the day that abomination know as pumpkin spice coffee is on offer. It also means that it is time for my annual posting of my anti-pumpkin spice poem –
I double checked, it’s August still
Yet scrolling down my Facebook wall
It seems I’m wrong, it’s really Fall.
Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger – nice.
Cloves and allspice – maybe not,
Still, in pie it hits the spot.
Coffee, sure, that’s de rigueur
But sprays and soaps and lotions, Yikes
The world seems made of pumpkin spice.
Old fashioned folks like me protest!
Pumpkin spice in pie is best,
Please leave it out of all the rest.
