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.

    dude, you totally have to write a film based on that. a really arty-farty masterpiece with obscure references to things that have never been made such as george eliot's obscure novel "fuck off and go swimming will you?"

    maybe that was poor taste…oh well. feel better smelly.
