I give to give for you to take. Libate licentious! raucaus rake! Upend the mug in throated draughts - no subtle grins but belly laughs. My cup of tea philosophy is sweet deep drinking anarchy. Entire seas between the knees... a-drip, a-drop, a-turn-at-ease. You tell me "yr too much" I glee! "noway. I'm absolutely free!" *** O is for Oyster Who lives in a shell If you leave her alone She feels perfectly well.
