Tea Time Saturday


An Easy-Jet boeing
going South
sneaks from cloud to cloud.

While down here at
Mersey level
It is teatime, Saturday.

And the ferries are in
a rush to dock,
home for scones and tea

Isle of Man Steam Packet
Sea-Cat sweeps
waves aside with three hulls.

Pacific and Oriental
wriggles stern
through the sea-lock gates.

And Brave Merchant's
Doubling home
from Dublin, roll off ready.

Wallasey is bathed
with suns shine,
Liverpool pierhead lashed

With Rain, teatime
Saturday.
