I love my Butter Crunches dipped
  in steaming Yorkshire Tea.
It makes them mellow on the tongue
  and tastier for me.

I never leave them very long,
  in case they crumble up
and cause an awful soggy mess
  that sticks inside my cup.

I took my son to Grandma’s house
  when he was just a boy,
and plunging shortcakes in his tea
  he smiled with heartfelt joy.

“Oh! don’t do that dear,” Grandma glared,
  “It’s rather rude,” she said.
“Well Mummy does it all the time.”
  I felt myself turn red.

Sophistication disappeared,
  I am a slob – it’s true!
Yet I am sure when all alone,
  she dunks her biscuits too.
