Driving through New Jersey
Headed southward to Cape May,
The air was clear, the sky was blue,
Twas a lovely, sunny day.
The car was purring smoothly,
I was feeling somewhat mellow
When my senses were assaulted
By a sudden splash of yellow.
Incongruous is the word I chose
To describe it to my wife,
“The biggest eyesore I have seen
In many years of life.”
My special girl was more subdued
(She is a gracious honey)
Suggesting merely that it’s crude
And shows they’ve too much money.
It often makes me ponder
Why some people are so flash,
Do you suppose they wonder
What to do with all their cash?
The sudden burst of colour
Left me just a little skittish,
I pointed out there was no doubt
The owners can’t be British!
And then we saw the sign outside
It read ‘Olde English Teas‘
I stepped in and demanded
“Tea; milk, no sugar, please.”
