There is a difference in size between coffee and teaspoons.  Coffee
resonates better
with the sound pattern. Tablespoons involves the image of tables which
is irrelevant,  The two syllables of caw-fee have roughly equal length,
while TAY is longer than BLE. The equal length of the sillybulls
reinforces the meaning of the line.

Cheers,
Peter
