An Ode to Tea

My tea

I thank thee!

Your awesomely great

And it has nothing to do with the crate

That you were sent from another state.

And from that state

You were born and raised

For me to drink and praise.

I thank you tea,

For the memories you've given me.

For once we were,

But never again.

For we will never see,

Nor be,

The same again.

For now drink, I shall, from you

And never again shall tea you be,

Instead you will be pea.
