Take a Talent Out to Tea

Ask it to dress up
for an occasion!
Take it out to tea.
Have it wear a pretty
ring. Say you’ll cover
everything. Repair
to some dark lair

to share. Clink
and bless the cups
upon whose brims
you’ve found, with it,
the brink: whereon
two sets of lips
can now aspire

to conspire – drink
to think. Put your
frizzled pretty heads
together: promulgate
a plan. You can play
the lady, it can play
the man. Or entertain

an altogether other
sham shenanigan.
Facilitate felicity –
felicitate facility.
Achieve a little wit.
You’ll get the gist,
and so will it.
