Stopping by the tea stop


Stopping by the Tea Shop:

My driver gives his squeaky throat a shake,
Asks if its tea time.
It's 0030 I see the wood lit fire,
A kettle,
My imagination is cold.
The tea was warm,
LPG heated.
My driver shook his head,
Said tea was too much,
I retorted halve it,
He looked askance,
tiger, said I,
Throw what you can't sip.
I heard his mental bell shake,
On my next sip I found a fly,
Dead and belly up,
In the embrace of my tea cup.
I told him,
Anwar, I will drink the other,
Half, of your tea,
You were right,
Full kills.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
