Tea With Crackers

Tea With Crackers

A Poem by Earl Schumacker

Once upon a railroad track catastrophe


Tea With Crackers

Honor me with your company at tea

Outdoors where the air is always free

A table awaits us on the railroad tracks

Have a seat facing me my good old friend

The 10:00 am bullet train is coming fast

It should arrive on time this time

Would you like some jam with crackers?

Don’t worry. Don’t look behind you

That sound you hear is your imagination

Thunder is normal this time of year

If you feel a draft just close your eyes

It will pass through you once upon a time

Impacts are funny like that

It is after ten. I fear a crash is near

Drink up while you can my friend

I’m sorry. Did I say crash?

Crackers is what I meant to say

Good day

I believe I will pass, thank you very much my dear Earl. I generally regard a very good tea as one I live through.
