Here is a silly little nonsense poem I wrote about drinking a cup of tea and all the terrible danger that can happen should things go wrong! Don’t expect it to make any sense, but do enjoy it and let me know what you think.
I will try and post any pictures that you send in to show what this world may look like. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Cup of Tea
I went to drink a cup of tea,
Instead that cup of tea drank me!
It slurped me up, and flushed me around,
Then swallow hard, it was quite profound!
Flolloping down, with burbles and gurgles,
Flipping and flapping and avoiding some fur-balls!
Sweeping deeper – low and then high,
I flew past a sandwich that had started to cry!
Then on through some socks – only one of each mind!
Laughing their toes off, they were very unkind!
Then two forks did a jig and some tongs told a lie,
And a biscuit floated past with a wink of its eye.
‘Til a spoon scooped me up and flipped me back out,
You know, past that teddy that had started to shout,
With a hard soggy bump, I sploshed on the floor,
And at once decided to drink tea no more.
