Shall We Take Tea

Shall we take tea my dear,

Shall we sip and contemplate the world.

Shall we talk of governments, of kings, and more.

Of wars between countries, of banners unfurled.

Shall we take tea my dear,

Take time to ponder our next move.

Perhaps hatch a plan do nothing at all,

But we must take care not to stew.

Shall we take tea my dear,

As prelude to sweet sordid love.

An invigorating tonic to stir,

Rousing the mind and body to lust.

Shall we take tea my dear,

For no reason other than itself.

For no cause other than to enjoy a cup,

And savour the taste, its wealth.
