The Magic Cure

It soothes it calms

and helps us to reflect

It’s been around for many years

No needles to inject


Medicinal, ingestible

A wonder of the world

Not the opium of the people

but can be addictive 

none the less 


In many a crisis it is used

In hospitals or prisons

Suitable from the very young

to those growing old or wizened 


It’s suggested if we’re feeling down

angry or depressed 

The properties that it contains 

Separate it from the rest


Used across the globe

by billions of people you see

Yes there’s nothing quite like it...

A cup of Rosie Lee!

“World war three has started

So put the kettle on!”

Thanks, I was literally pouring myself a cuppa when I got the idea for the poem?

Thank you Hannah, yes I like punch line poetry, and let’s face it, a cup of tea can solve any problem known to man (we wish) ?
