Keep Calm And Have A Cuppa

In 1942 when the Germans and Japanese
Were rampant across the world during WW II

The British needed to raise the moral
Of their troops who were under pressure in the field

So the government bought up
All the tea available on the planet

So their troops were supplied with tea
Making a brew up became important to them

They cooked it in the desert on a Bengazi burner
Or on ships in the Atlantic and Pacific

On battlefields across Asia and Europe
British soldiers brewed up

And their morale was improved
So the humble cuppa helped win the war.

Britishers were the true lovers of tea. They knew how to win the war. Excellent presentation. Thanks a lot, Paul.
