A Cup Of Tea


Come...share a cup of tea with me.
Tell me about your day, how it went.
Would you care for a scone with that?
Come...share a cup of tea with me.

Was your day fabulous and fun, kiddo?
Or did your day reek like dead tuna?
Did you meet new friends, see old ones?
Come...share a cup of tea with me.

Did you make your day worth your rising?
Do you feel satisfied on how the day went?
Are you ready to call it a day, and retire?
Come...share a cup of tea with me.

Ahh, the teapot is now drained...want more?
It won't be a bother...a pleasure, in fact.
So enjoy your scone and tell me of your day
as you share a cup of tea with me!
