You may think my only function
is to brew and pour out tea
you’re wrong with this assumption
there’s more to me you must agree.
Creative hands have shaped my form
moulded my handle and my spout
a crocheted cover keeps me warm
though there’s more that I’m about.
I am practical shapely and attractive
and often adorned by artists hands
I can be ritualistic and often addictive
placed with care on special stands.
I am revered the whole world over
“Have a cuppa” is a universal call
and I must say moreover
I’ll sate the thirst of one and all.
