Drinking Tea in a Nice Cafe with George Eliot

Drinking Tea in a Nice Café with George Eliot

Twinnings, Earl Gray for George,
Yorkshire, typhoo, tetley’s for me,
Sainsbury’s own brand,
Lack of options teaches one not to be fussy.

No, I thought ‘Middlemarch’ was quite boring,
It’s a realist tradition English masterpiece!
Shut up George, you always interrupt my talking.
What do you know about it anyway?

About what? Sarcastically, flirtatiously,
About what I like, of course,
And do stop talking in that high-pitched voice,
People will think you are queer.
