Burn close to the basin while ye pray,
For fireworks spark from leaves of bay.
Come, dwell in the sacred cup and be pleased by my offerings of cream and sugar.
Oh, bitter-sweet, varied one, grant me strength to see this day through.
Ward off the chill of dawn and protect me from idleness.
Praise Caffeinia, the Dark conquering queen!
-Hymn to Caffeinia. To be sung in humble fashion while coffee is made, regardless of how supplicant is preparing the blessed nectar, for all forms of enjoyment are appropriate offerings. Composed by D. R. Moundshroud for The Gate & Key Society.
