Fathoms Plus Rule

Sunday afternoon with the temp in three digits beating dowm
No relief in sight as another heat wave strikes this coastal beach town
Where to go to escape the brutal Santa Ana wind born heat?
Piece of cake on a Sunday to a nearby Starbucks for a cold treat
The barista formerly of no name now Shelby is holding court
A new woman a fathom plus is holding down this caffeine fort
A barista of grace, elegance and Starbucks esprit
Looks down at this former fathom as she stands at six foot three
No name on the apron but from her lips Valorie is her  name
At a fathom plus three clearly a woman like her name of intelligence to stupidity tame
Parents named her well and gave her the fathom plus genes
Another reason to dump the donuts and head to the Starbucks scene
