Tea Party Ponderings

What began one night in Boston still continues in our day

In Beantown in the days of Paul
not all revered King George.
His government was deemed unjust,
inflated and engorged.

And so began a party
(in the harbor) bailing tea
to protest too-much government
from sea to shining sea.

This party of Republicans,
of Democrats and more
just find it hard to swallow
what the liberals tend to pour.

It’s a party of more simple tastes
where herb tea’s plenty strong,
where what is brewed and steeped at home
can’t be considered wrong.

Both iced and hot, it’s tea they crave.
It is their drink of choice.
The “we the people” party want
each state to have their voice.
