A Nice Cup of Tea
A nice cup of tea solves so many things,
Like how to calm down when the front doorbell rings.
If you take long enough they’ll just go away,
Or they’ll need a hot drink, "Chamomile or Earl Grey?"
“Won’t you please share a cup?” make’s a new friend for life.
It’s amazing how tea solves all troubles and strife.
It’s calm on the ocean. It’s peace in the soul.
It even drinks nicely when it’s gone icy cold.
Take the load off your feet. Relax your sore mind.
Be good to yourself. What tea can we find?
Black, green or herb? They’re all a delight.
They’re good for your health. Tea makes everything right.
Here’s the answer to problems. World peace it could bring.
Who can argue and fight when the kettle steam sings?
It’s a miracle drink! No doubt about that.
You can drink it all day, it won’t make you fat.
And a frightening big stranger, or large law enforcer,
Seems suddenly kind holding teacup and saucer.
It just goes to show how good life can be,
When all troubles are solved with a nice cup of tea.

I am a tea drinker. I thought I needed a light little bit of fun for Poetry Wednesday!
