Friends for Tea and Patriotic Privates

Table boarder.

Unconcerned that human guest and I are sitting at the table.

Our visitors for tea
Don’t always take a seat –
Some use the table, see?
I think that’s kind of neat.


Two friends for tea

He takes gently and politely.

Here Minky reaches out
To take a little snack –
Base leaves one in no doubt
That colonies are back …

Great envy is aroused
In breasts of me and you,
To see ‘equipment’ shades
Of bright red, white and blue!
