Tea and Harmony


Why do we sit drinking tea?
Is it really good for me?
Hired men of science make grand claims,
But profit is their actual aim.
A caffeine buzz is what we crave,
To turn it down is really brave.
To bond the group is the true goal,
It melds the parts into a whole.
So jealous egos fade away!
We hope that tea brings harmony.

    Loved this one. I'm a total hot tea drinker! Decaf tea that is.
    Not sure if I believe all the hype either about how good it is for you.
    Tea fills me with harmony as I drink it whenever writing poetry.
    Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
