A Gift of Herbal Tea
Imagine my thinly veiled dismay
To open a gift on my birthday
Finding boxes of Herbal Tea.
Yes. Herbal Tea…
For future reference please give me
Anything else, even
Hamster poison or barbed wire socks,
Hard boiled dung, cigar stubs in a box.
Bite sized serum bars of the Killer Bee
But I dare you, I really dare you
To give me Herbal Tea.
I’m partial to lottery scratch cards…
