S is for…Sweet Tea (#AtoZ)

Here is my latest post for the #AtoZChallenge for April 2022. My title and theme for this challenge is “Seriously Silly Poetry” in recognition of April being poetry month and also wanting to do something fun and playful to celebrate spring. I hope you enjoy this series.

Sweet Tea

a Golden Shovel from Gertrude Stein’s “Susie Asado”

Boisterous big belly bellows. Sweet!

Grinning wiggly jiggly giggles. Sweet!

Seriously willy nilly sillies. Sweet!

Whoopsie-doozie goofy guffaws. Sweet!

Sweet lord, who spiked the tea so sweet?

Sweet Tea!

Be well,

      Hahaha! Yah – I’m with you.


  3. How do you come up with all these ‘adjectives,’ sounds, etc? They are all genius.
    Sweet tea… I used to like tea that seems way too sweet to me nowadays. But, even back in the day, there were places where sweet tea was just sugar with a few drops of tea… I have no idea how people drink that.

      Honestly this is all just in my head. My mom and I used to talk gibberish for hours during long car rides when I was a kid as a game so maybe that gave me some practice. Thanks so much!

    Sweet tea has never been my cup of tea but I’d drink it if thirsty enough… A silly poem but one that took quite the chance with the Susie Asado poem!!

      It’s also not my favorite, but if it made all this happen for me I might be more inclined to partake – haha.
