Attempt to be the cup of tea
for he and she and me and thee
& soon you’ll find your head will drag
you’ll be a soggy tasteless bag
before you’ve had a chance to brew
and that would be a waste of you.
The good news is, it’s ne’er too late
to plug the tendency to wait
on every Harry, Sam and Sue
and gravitate instead to you.
Your self knows better why you’re here,
the rest is just a donkey’s ear!
