Tea and Biscuit Perched on the Saucer – Family Poetry

She would make us tea
and perch a biscuit on the saucer
for an extra bit of sweetness
just in case we'd be feeling a bit off
and needed some extra
love and steel to
last in what she called
the big bad world.
And her smile and
her voice would make it a bit
easier, at least for a while,
before we'd have to go and
weather the next pile of cr*p
a long way away from
tea and soggy biscuit
taste holding steady
on choppy tongues.
