TEA time


What's the difference between a group, squad, side, band, bunch, company, party, gang, selection, crew, troupe, set, line-up, body, corps, cadre, partnership, alliance, working party, posse and a team. Is it more or less than a supportive act.


'TEA time'

There is no "I" in team!
but there is TEA in team
so why don't you stop
and make us some tea?


Theres also a "tam"
which after some beers
becomes a "tam-tam"


So take out your Gong
and sing us a song
there is no "I" in team
our tea needs some cream!


(Seryianis, 2018)
