A New Bill of Rights

saturday while i was in the portland airport i stopped at a coffee shop to curve my craving for an espresso drink. the shop i stopped in was called coffee people, (http://coffeepeople.com). i ordered a gooy caremel latte. after recieving my latte i proceeded to dress it with a recycled insulator. i went and sat at a table next to a window that looked out upon multiple gates with airplanes taxiing in and out. after finishing my latte i noticed that my cup had quite a lot of text on it. it was called the "bill of rights." here's what it said...

coffee people
bill of rights
1. people of coffee, you have certain rights.
among these are the rights of spring,
the right to peace, freedom & coffee.
in that order.
2. you have the right to remain silent.
you have the right to become an attorney.
if you cannot become an attorney,
someone will become one for you.
3. you have the right to wander, in your own way,
the garden of hydraulics that is espresso.
4. you have the right to form your own opinions.
you may even have the right to address the
the nation tonight during the dinner hour.
check local listings.
5. you have the right to expect freedom from
back talk. however seen from outer space
much of the globe appears to be blue.
therefore, o wanderer, speak softly to us.
6. coffee isn't always the answer,
certainly not. but it remains a beautiful
question we are inclined to ask.
