Cup and Biscuit

They sit

with cup and biscuit in hand

a clearly defined purpose

to discuss the moral of the situation

steering the committee to new and loftier heights

but when the discussion allows in the unholy marauder of reality

cups are never filled

biscuits remain uneaten

and not  one crumb will ever be  tossed under the table

for the people who need it most

because they don’t do anything really


have tea parties

eye each other jealously


from behind their humble bumble bee stinging smiles

After all, it is in the truest sense of the word a sort of social club for the bland and unremarkable.
