    It maketh me to wake in green pastures:

    It restoreth my buzz:
    It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
    I will fear no Equal (tm):
    For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
    Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Thy Starbucks:
    Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
    Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
    And I will dwell in the House of Mocha forever.
