“Foofoo coffe,” a Found Poem, by Rhia

Sticky note with message from Rhia
 The other day, when I was tidying up the living room, I found a stack of sticky notes (neon green, no less), with little messages written on them.
This was definitely the hand of Rhia, my granddaughter, probably bored one day and wanting to be a bit snarky and revealing.
She was 8 at the time.
I decided to create a “found poem” from them – complete with creative spelling (words in parenthesis were on the obverse):
