Tea And No Sympathy - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

Now, dear, let's not quarrel anymore;
in fact, love, let me pour.

This is absolutely heavenly;
from what is it made?

It's a hearty herbal tissane
of belladonna, nightshade
and a soupcon of henbane.

So soothing, so light
I think I shall sleep well tonight.

    Though they have the prettiest names imaginable, belladonna, nightshade and henbane are generally poisonous to humans. (Report) Reply
