Food for Thought- Sweet Tea (Part 2) A Poem

iced-tea-1-570x570

Stonehenge was overrated,
The Eiffel tower was too small,
The Hindu Kush was kind of cushy,
The menu at Wendy’s has become too complicated,
Captain has lost his Crunch,
I was beyond half past dead when I got to Nazareth,
My burden is great,
My yokes were served over easy,
The bacon came late,
Yet the sweet tea,
Stood up and called to me,
Sit and drink,
Await and be,
Find meaning in the leaves,
Brewed at the gas station counter,
And offered for your relief.
