Storm in a Teacup

Silence does a reconnaissance around the room betraying not my artillery of thoughts that acknowledge the elephant in the room so starts the ceremony that seeks to save soldiers body language begins to breakdown barriers as actions march in motion anticipating the ritual of tea that takes centre stage tactically open to observation and interrogation all actions organised to be economically efficient calibrated by the infra red eye of the guest animosity surrenders respectfully and retreats a ceasefire that allows peace to deploy and enter steam captivates a tea cup holding it hostage watching whilst water wages war on leaves cajoling caressing domineering them to release and surrender their secrets and serve with military precision this tea sets in motion a tour of duty washing away all detachment reminding us to deploy civilized actions that counter attack collateral damage the tea ceremony symbolically strategises and ambushes all thoughts of war away quenching the thirst for covert operations once again a creating coup d'etat in a cup
