26/ It’s Always Teatime

 

I know! I know! It’s time for tea.

There never is a break,

from all this drinking beverage,

and eating up the cake.

 

Round the table, swapping seats,

positions rearranged;

that is about the limit of

the way that things do change.

 

At the start it had been so much fun,

but that has worn away;

the whole thing is now monotonous

in every single way.

 

I’m sick to death of sandwiches,

can’t stand the smell of tea;

we need to break this rhythm up

and somehow become free.

 

Perhaps we could do dinner,

or maybe break our fast;

but that means that we need some time

where eating’s in the past.

 

So let’s try something that is wild,

give our days a shake,

for if things just go on and on

too soon something will break!
