Such a long time has slipped by since I last played this game but what better way to restart than Tea with dVerse. Thanks to Claudia for the prompt on 5 August. It is just a bit of nonsense but fun to do.
Life is an old tea cup,
with orange flowers painted in bloom,
filled from an old liquor bottle
sip-savoured till dregs remain.
The magic of such a potion
old Obelix could explain
to the dog with yellow-teeth grin
whose love was to gnaw a bone.
To the dragon who melted the Ice Queen
but came close to quenching his flame
and the crocodile soothed by the blues man
playing on his saxophone,
to the black cat counting his nine lives
who always finds his way home.
And the man who can’t stop clapping
as the blue car takes him away
for sip-savoured tea-cup liquor
imbibed all night and day.
