Not just a cup of tea

Only want a brew!!


I can remember quite clearly
Back in the day
When things were so simple
at home or away


Tea’s long been around
It’s really nothing new
All this kaffuffle now
Just over a brew?


‘Milk and sugar?’
‘One lump of two?’
It was really than simple
and familiar to you


Now it’s a cocktail
Of caramels and mint
And numerous others
Too many to print


If you want to impress
try organic Earl and Grey
It shows you have class
If you’re willing to pay


I can’t order my favourite
Which is pyramid PG Tips
It’s Lipton’s or twinnings
to pass my parched lips 👄


Even sugar has
changed by a mile
It’s Sweetex or Splenda
Not just Tate and Lyle


All these changes
It’s just too much for me
When all I want
Is a cup of tea ☕️
