The Tea Drinker's Lament

Decaf Lipton?
You know what Decaf Lipton says, Sharon?
It says that you hate the tea drinkers in your life.
And don’t bother to hunt for the stray 10-year-old
bag of Earl Grey in your
sunny yellow kitchen cupboards.
You know that it tastes
the way an old lady smells.
I always bring my own tea bags in my purse.
You don’t even have a tea kettle, do you? No.
You are going to put water in a chipped coffee cup
and heat it up in the microwave.
