My Cart 


Michael Jones


Iím a two-cup man, I like my tea.
If you insist, Iíll even have three.
I like it hot; I like it sweet,
You can always make it four as a treat.
I drink it from a cup, I drink it from a mug,
Given the chance Iíll even drink it from a jug.
Tea leaves or tea bags, itís all the same to me,
Just keep it coming, as strong as it can be.
If you run out of tea, just go get some more,
And Iíll eagerly wait Ďtil you walk in the door.

A well-deserved ode to TEA, said with such alacrity. Here's to Earl Grey!
