Tea Party

The cute little girl in the next house over

Invited me to a tea party on a bed of clover

Come, “We'll have cakes, cookies, pies and tea”

I'll be there I told her, "You can count on me"

The spread on the blanket was quite a display

Lots of sweet chocolate treats what a wonderful day

I bit on a cookie my heart and jaw sank with a thud

It was all make believe, all the sweets were mud
