Heartless Starbucks To Fire Barista For Having Small Heart Tattoos

Starbucks may have coffee that many believe is worthy to drink
But when it comes to PR and image one wonders how and do they think
The news that a barista of five years is going to be axed
For theft, for absenteeism or being late or for service not to the max?
None of these only a thumb sized tattoo of a heart
From Starbucks’ no visible tattoo policy she did depart
Not gang colors or images racial or obscene
Only a sign of love for which we all dream
She had it when she was hired and not one customer has complained
One would hope that from this act Starbucks would refrain
They of course have the right
To be heartless and not bright
So here is a suggestion that Starbucks might heed
40 million Americans have tattoos and you may have planted the boycott seed
Insulting part of your customer base is never a right move
So axe instead the demand that a heart tattoo be removed
