Tea Time

Some say it's a genetic thing.

             When those patriots
                        dumped that tea
                                                 in Boston Harbor,
                                    they rearranged
                                                            the nucleotides
                                                in our tea-making

The American Revolution
                        was only a minor consequence.

            The loss of ability to make a good cup of tea
                                    was forever imprinted.

            We were doomed
                        to the frenetic pace
                                    of our pounding blood.
