I'D LIKE TO BE A TEABAG

I AM NOT THE WRITER OF THIS POEM.  It's one I read many years ago and loved.  My daughter came across it in a book of comic verse, remembered be talking about it and emailed me a copy.  The first verse is my favourite and  I loved reading it again - hope everyone else enjoys it.



I'd like to be a teabag,
And stay at home all day -
And talk to other teabags
In a teabag sort of way.

I'd love to be a teabag,
And lie in a little box -
And never have to wash my face
Or change my dirty socks...

I'd like to be a teabag,
An Earl Grey one perhaps,
And doze all day and lie around
With Earl grey kind of chaps.

I wouldn't have to do anything,
No homework, jobs or chores -
Comfy in my caddy
Of teabags and their snores.

I wouldn't have to do exams,
I needn't tidy rooms,
Or sweep the floor or feed the cat
Or wash up all the spoons.

I wouldn't have to do a thing,
A life of bliss - you see....
Except that once in all my life


I'd make a cup of tea!

Peter Dixon
