Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #283 #Customs and practices

Though the clocks have been put back one hour

I hope it will not affect adversely our

custom whereby we British pour

ourselves a cup of tea around four

on each weekday afternoon

often in the drawing room

although this demonstration of English taste

seems to have been rather displaced

such beverage would not be complete

without a tray of dainties to eat

and if you decided you would risk it

you could choose to dunk a biscuit

  2. I’m not at all sure we British still sit in drawing rooms & parlours and take high tea at four. But we sure as hell do dunk our biscuits (unlike our American kinsfolk who prefer to dunk donuts)
