Fun Poem for the Hidden Meaning for Tea

sun on river mountain 1

A synonym for tea: marijuana

This was surprising for me when I read it. This is a fun little poem in dedication to the hidden meaning of tea.

 

I met a man in his sixties

drinking a long island tea

expressing a story

from when he was a hippie

 

He took a long drag

on his cigarette

about a different kind of tea

with no regret

 

It seems this tea

was grown in a pot

all around him were calm

smoking from this spot

 

The tea was also

cooked in a brownie mix

all who ate them

their munchies were fixed

 

He moved out west

where this special tea grew

living in the mountains

living that life anew

 

He has no regrets

growing tea on his farm

making a mellow profit

adding to his charm

Sweet Tea Day

tea

 

Sweet tea

the wine of the South

along with decadent treats

sweet to the mouth

 

 

A wonderful sunny afternoon

enjoying a glass of sweet cold tea

such wonderful memories

of stories told to me

 

Tales of  a party

in a story of old

tea thrown overboard

high taxes to withhold

 

 

An elderly woman

reading the tea leaves

telling of the future

each leaf that she sees

 

Then the story

with a rabbit and mad hatter

a wonderful tea party

imagination in the matter

 

Drinking sweet tea

cooling on this summer day

reading short stories

enjoying life this way
