Cup of tea

I also found in the library a copy of 'Dog' by John Hegley, which I took out just out of interest, having seen him perform at Hesfes. Although his poems are mainly pitched at children and have what you would think of as 'child' themes, and are mostly very straightforward, I liked the fact that they often had quite subtle meanings couched in very plain language. My favourite had to be, however, the Cup of Tea poem, the most perfect synthesis of poem and life philosophy. Enjoy.
