Tea Talk
By C. J. Dennis


"Excuse me if I sit on you," the cup said to the saucer.
    "I fear I've been here all the afternoon."
"Spare excuses," said the saucer; "you have sat on me before, sir."
    "Oh, I'll stir him up directly," said the spoon.
"Stop your clatter! Stop your clatter!" cried the bread-and-butter platter
    "Tittle-tattle!" sneered the tea-pot, with a shrug;
"Now, the most important question is my chronic indigestion."
    "Ah, you've taken too much tannin," jeered the jug.
"Hey, hey, hey!" sang the silver-plated tray,
"It's time you had your faces washed.  I've come to clear away!"
