Professors at tea

Learned men carnival
At teatime
Like dervishes
Wise men whirl
Giddy, dizzy, stoned
Drinking Dajeerling with
Well-bred sips
Fingers crooked 
With delicacy
Grave men
Blasting vuvuzelas 
Standing on table tops
Like frenzied fans
Masks slip, fall
Among teaspoons and
Caramel treats
While a wide-eyed waitress

Notes: Plastic trumpet blown at soccer games in South Africa

Ermilinda, try again! I managed to write a comment (to myself).
