FROM BEGINNING TO END







FROM BEGINNING TO END



I start life in a cardboard box
No it doesn`t have any locks,
Wrapped in cellophane I`m kept fresh
Also keeps me warm `cause I`m nesh.


Out I come and put in a cup
From which someone will later sup,
First hot water is poured on me
Stirred `til I can no longer see.


On the spoon I`m then taken out
I`ll be used again there`s no doubt,
They have given me a name tag
I am a second hand tea bag.


They`re making another cuppa
No doubt to have with their supper,
I`m pressed and pushed against the side
In this cup there`s nowhere to hide.


Squeezed `til every last drop I give
My job done I no longer live,
Useless now I`m dropped in the bin
Wet and soggy I hit the tin.
