Devastated in heaven

Reacting to this post, Ammani sends me this poem by John Agard:
You'll be greeted
by a nice cup of coffee
when you get to heaven
and strains of angelic harmony.

But wouldn't you be devastated
if they only serve decaffeinated
while from the percolators of hell

your soul was assaulted
by Satan's fresh espresso smell?
Nice. And how would you react if you saw a new coffee shop in your neighbourhood named "Satan's Fresh Espresso"? Me, I'd pop right in.
