Cup Of Tea - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

A glass of milk, of water, and wine -
Which one that suits you best?
Which do you prefer to drink?
Me? The first two are my faves.

There on the center table stand
A cup of tea and a cup of coffee -
Take your pick and sip,
As you enjoy watching TV.

A mug of liquor, a sachet of drugs,
And a pack of cigarettes -
Are you going to seriously damage
Both your health and wealth?

Listening to the sound of music,
Painting, or writing songs of love -
Whatever is your plan of activity,
Make sure it pleases the Lord above.

I'll vow to fear the Almighty,
I'll depart from the road of iniquity;
Intensive obedience to His Word
Is my cup of tea.

    Listening to the sound of music,
    Painting, or writing songs of love -
    Whatever is your plan of activity,
    Make sure it pleases the Lord above.
    A mantra for a beautiful life- simple and righteous ways and 'Intensive obedience to His Word'. Great poem Thanks a lot.

    A very witty play on the words 'cup of tea'. Tea is a very reliable drink.
    I like reading your poem with a cup of tea.
