Crumbles

 

Annabel Hall and Mrs Smythe-Boaste
Opened their tea shop last May,
Serving cream teas and cinnamon toast,
It was sure to be good you would say.
 
With flowery plates and saucers by Spode
 It made you feel really quite posh,
And certainly worth a trip up the road
If you fancied some higher class nosh.
 
The cakes were homemade and really a dream,
The pastries an absolute treat,
The scones always came with plenty of cream
-
The loveliest place you could eat.
 
The tea would be served piping hot from the pot,
The crumpets with butter and jam,
But the shop would be closed half past four on the dot
Which didn’t suit everyone’s plan.
 
If you went for a walk in this quaint little spot
You’d have to have ordered by four,
And that's really too early for many to stop
Before 'Closed' would be hung on the door.

By the end of the year the tea shop was gone,
Such a pity you’ll have to agree,
But Mrs Smythe-Boaste said it had to be done
-
Well there weren’t enough people you see.
