“What’s your poison?”
Asks the WordPress guy
In all seriousness.
(Cut him some slack, guys!
It’s a job!)
And I answer,
“It’s tea, old chap!
tea with a little milk,
Tea without sugar, jaggery, aspartame, honey, jam or anything sugary.
Either to purge or just for a change
But more caffeine’s bitter, pal,
and I need a saccharine kick,
To swallow the acidic astringent!
(PS: I’m not diabetic. I think.)
