A Cup of Tea
 
 
One day I saw a man sit down
And pour himself a spot of tea.
He poured his cup to rim and when
He downed the brew he looked at me--
And frowned and said I think it needs
A bit of cream and so he went
And fetched a jar and poured himself
A spot of tea and then he spent--
A time to get the lid undone
And then he stirred a bit of cream
And downed the brew and looked at me
And frowned and said I fear it seems--
That it should be a bit more sweet
And so he went and fetched a jar
And took a lump, not one but two,
And poured himself a spot of tea--
And stirred some cream and both the lumps
And sipped the brew and looked at me
And frowned and said I think that I
Just now might be a bit too full
for tea.
