Deus Ex Coffee Machina


Select choice of beverage.
Position cup.
Stand back as machine..
Gurgles,
Clanks,
Makes the sound of a tortured cat.
Then the hiss of an asthmatic snake.
Re-position cup to catch coffee.
Despair as frothed milk evaporates.
Note suspicious film on your beverage.
Pay outrageous price.

Consume.

Moan to colleagues about quality.

Do it all again tomorrow.
