My Adventures in Tea pt.6


I wonder who this man
Named Earl might have been
And why they found him grey.

I’m sure he wasn’t black or white
But somewhere in between,
With how he talked and
Got things done.

He could have been a
Lawyer or a politician;
Perhaps a contractor with
Two-hundred different deadlines
That got into the tea biz late in life
When his hair had lost its sense of color,
Heightening his grey.
