I saw your teapot

I saw your teapot,

it was small.

Quite clean, and stylish

very neat.


Looks like you use it now and then

but yet,

it didn’t fool me.


Not one of those well crafted ones,

that make ten cups a day.

Nor one of the enormous ones,

when we’ve a lot to say.

Or well respected older pots,

with patches, cracks, decay.


I judge men by their teapots now,

and yours is lacking greatly.

Takes more than water and a bag,

to brew a proper Tetley.
