From the Archives

Because the poetry has been a bit thin on this website of late, I feel it’s time to dig deeply into the archives.  Here’s one I still enjoy performing in a faux-Shakespearean style, stolen from Eric Idle in Monty Python’s Poet McTeagle sketch.  Based on a true story!

Liber Tea

Manifesting unexpectedly upon my arm
Luke-warm, but warmer still
Than the fire drill
My tea
On me
Instead of in

White shirt wanting to be free
Summons a mighty energy
No respect for gravity or boundary
Of mug
My tea
On me
