It tastes just the same
Sugar-less or spoonful of,
Gulp the bitter tea

Reminds me of a Freak Brothers comic I read many years ago.
Franklin has made coffee when he realises there is no sugar in the flat so he sends Fat Freddy (who gets ripped off whenever he tries to buy something) down to the corner to get some.
The shop is closed for some reason but there is a dodgy looking guy outside who says he can sell Freddy ‘anything he desires’.
Freddy says he’s after some sugar.
“Oh yes, ‘sugar'”, says the dodgy guy, “I’ve always got ‘sugar'”.
Freddy hands over some money and receives a bag of white powder.
Back at the flat Franklin and Phineas are stirring the sugar into their coffee while berating Freddy for paying so much money for such a small bag. Franklin raises the coffee to his lips and winces, “It doesn’t even make the coffee sweet!”. Phineas has already drank his coffee and is passed out in the background.
Amazing you were able to tell the whole story in 17 syllables.
