The Chairman’s Tea Party was a great success:

Let’s have a tea party!

We’ll wear hats and lace.
We won’t slurp or wiggle;
someone will say grace.
Our table might topple –
so many sweet treats!
Still, we’ll nibble and sip,
never leave our seats.
Our best dolls will join us;
our teddy bears, too.
We’ll converse like grown ups:
“Hi. How do you do?”
Let’s have a tea party!
Who needs hats and lace?
Everyone’s invited.
We’ll save you a place.
