Magpie Mondays {From Goblets to Starbucks Plastic Cups}



From Goblets to Starbucks Plastic Cups

Just because I had a nightcap at Starbucks an hour ago...


THEN

Around the table, they sat,
all formal and stiff.
Women on curvy corsets, 
and men on top hats and tails.
Goblets and silver spoons
are their tools of attack,
while organic soft music 
escapes the strings of the rebec.

NOW

Around the table, they sat,
all cool and comfy.
Women on tank tops,
and men on board shorts and slippers.
Plastic cups with cafe logos
are their symbols of superiority,
while pumping club music
spills out from the iPod speakers.
