On International Coffee Day: An Ode to the Translator’s Favorite Beverage
If you come to me with a hot cup of Joe
How on Earth would my answer be no?
Coffee is good any time of the day
Coffee is love, needless to say
But when you come to me with an early morning job
You will get no reply until I finish my cup!
I won’t answer any emails, I might turn off my phone
Before I get my caffeine fix, you better leave me alone
American, French press, espresso or Turkish
Without coffee, my translations sound Gibberish
I’ll be rather grumpy, my words not too accurate
Better be careful, dear Client; the situation is delicate!
“Wake up and smell the coffee” are my favorite words to hear
On International Coffee day, let’s all rejoice and cheer!
