Ode to Iced Tea

I can drink you morning, noon or night
You go with every meal
No coffee, soda, or juice will do
Craving tea leaves is what I feel

Lipton & Tetley make me salivate
Taste that tinge of brewed support
I even suffer through a Brisk
As a last resort

Oh tea leaf, don’t ever leave
I wouldn’t know what to do
Oh tea leaf, if you ever leave
My heart would break in two

Verse 4, line 2 should be "I wouldn't know what to do"


Love,
your editor

Kristy said...

Sorry, I meant Verse 3.

Thanks,

I got so worked up over the idea of the tea leaving that I couldn't think straight.

Poets are crying worldwide... that their craft was marred by this ode!
