Tea Party

Lies, glamor, gossip and Earl Grey tea,
Turbulent tales boiling in china cups.
Elegant sacraments of blue-haired ladies,
pinkies stuck in the air, hiding their anger
or boredom or feeling their own
delight.

Crimson glass roses, feathers and jewels
crowned with wide-brim hats… trims of
gloves, lace fans and perhaps some pearls
are appealing to these extravagant, fast
and proper old girls…

The guild does not approve of:
cola,
   tortilla chips or
      piercings of the tongue.

Invitation is by Tea Bag Only merely 
a device to project the status of a
proper, affluent wife. Shaved legs,
polished nails and GiGi’s Brazilian
waxing, will enliven you as a part
of the crowd but may seem
a little taxing.

    I really enjoyed this one: tongue-in-cheek and witty, I could almost read a double meaning into it, what with the title and the reference to tax in the final line (typo - 'seems' should be 'seem') cleverly satirical and observant, and fun to read! congrats on your win in my contest :)
