Tea Party

Lies glamour gossip and Earl Grey tea 
turbulent tales boiling in China cups 
elegant sacraments of blue-haired ladies 
pinkies stuck up in the air, hiding their 
anger or boredom or feeling their own 

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

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

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