after you go through a traumatic experience
or if you show up at someone’s house unexpected in the middle of the night
or if you show up at someone’s house unexpected in the middle of the day
they offer tea?
i know, it’s supposed to be calming and blah blah blah
but if me just missed being clobbered to death by a fallen building, or just wrestle me way outta some dungeon weh smaddy did have me lock up inna
di last ting me wasnt is a cup a red rose tea
me need a cold pepsi wid a whoe heap a ice <–also good if your captors have been starving you because it will buss off di gas
or a malta fresh from di fridge <–if me a wrestle wid any human or creature, me a go need fi buil back me strength
or a strong strong rum <–because i just lived through some madness, i’d say that’s cause for celebration!
but me nuh waan tea
and anodda ting… me nah seh me travel nuff, me passport have more empty pages than full….but me nuh see people a drink tea so inna real life
so, who is this based on?
aside from queenie.
