Good Golly Ms. Holly

Starbucks on Bristol near Jamboree
Is where one should want to be
A steady stream of coffee holics a fix to need
A prompt staff to always pay heed
Meet the most interesting people in line
Today an attractive Holly with a laugh not confined
Air conditioned jeans
A total beauty scene
Never been to Alaska but a fellow sister lives in Palin’s stomping ground
Advice given to Starlight up then ferry through the Narrows into Frederick Sound
On a cruise you are expected, almost required to tip
Regardless of whether the service is grand or merely lip
On a ferry a tip to a state employee is a bribe
Settle back enjoy the scenery, enjoy the ride
Fishing boats up and down in the Narrows in a steady stream
Base of the food pyramid to fuel the caloric dreams
Made my day to a few moments in a Starbucks converse
Could not help myself but had to remember the encounter in verse
