Lass Agnes a Dish



Give me a name to steal away
Nothing sly or insincere
Not in any way insulting
Proudly bold that friends revere

Amusing need not be forbidden
Frightful is better left out
A moniker that speaks to the inn crowd
Call "whose turn?" when its my turn to shout

Any old name is a worn out hat
Shared around in the any old way
Notorious something glorious
Powers a handle a great soubriquet

I'll settle on 'Tea's a Geezer'
For I’m a teapot kind of guy
Taking the view that a well flavoured brew
Is served and consumed with a sigh
