A Rich Tea
is not a biscuit
a Rich Tea
is a statement
of your faith in
imperfect nature
and the hope of
stealing jam

a Bourbon Cream
is a chocolate thing
good for dunking
if you like to
have a gamble
pimp your mama
at the dogs

but the Hobnob?
oh the Hobnob!
is a sad
and shameless bounder
a flagrant
flannel merchant
that’ll smile
and give you travel tips
with its hand
down your partner’s pants

and viridian?
that’s Italian cheese
that rides out in
a reindeer hat.​
