Attuned to catch the distant view-halloo

Chapter Text

When sheer inanity is at apogee

and men choose primate over growing old

the only sanity is a cup of tea.

 

A Doña’s vampire spree? What insanity!

But less bizarre than sinister truth-told

when sheer inanity is at apogee.

 

When a gift of a pearl of a mystery

yields promise and sorrow worth more than gold,

the only sanity is a cup of tea.

 

A steaming cup restores a sleuth’s humanity

when following the scent false of will o’ wisps bold,

when sheer inanity is at apogee.

 

When performing pious acts of charity

and one’s confronted by Death’s own, paroled,

the only sanity is a cup of tea.

 

When a Yarder casts aside his vanity

and asks for help, tea soothes the bruise ten-fold.

When sheer inanity is at apogee

the only sanity is a cup of tea.
