You are cordially invited to Mad Tea Party
Please join me and enjoy
Tea, hot and sweet as Death
and Tender Arsenic Cake
with some Luscious Death Caps
So many friends came, some grinning like the Cheshire Cat.
But alas, poor March Hare was not his talkative self that day!
Many a young lady was wearing the fashionable color.
Other details of ornaments were too beautiful!
Tea was indeed sweet and hot, so warm golden color and velvety feel on one's tongue!
My dear guests were delighted with a new experience of Arsenic, the lemon-like freshness of poisonous delicacy! It was almost half eaten before I had the chance to exclaim "Off with their heads!"
Tea time passed, but Madness continued, so we opened a nice bottle of wine.
Evening proceeded pleasantly and later, when everyone had had their death cap, we became a bit dandy and decided to gamble a bit.
So off I went to fetch a game called Biribi, a lotto-like French game from the 18th century.
Oh, the excitement! Winnings and losings were grand, but the rivals stayed benevolent towards each other.
We had such a nice little tea party, we did not stop to look at the time. Finally my old clock started to feel abandoned!
So, with Lady Time irritated, we had to end our Mad Tea Party. With some good luck, we might get her on good humor again, hopefully before next year's Mad Tea Party!
