A Thought for Today


Fish and chips
Curry sauce
Five large tea cakes
Buttered of course
Peas and carrots
Potatoes roast
Marmalade, Jam
Cheese on toast
Steak and onion
Gammon and egg
Fried mushrooms
A chicken leg
Sweet and sour
Beef chow mein
Special chop suey
Quiche Lorraine
Hot madras
Vindaloo
Stodgy porridge
Mothers stew
Asparagus, noodles
Artic role
Turkey, stuffing
Toad in the hole
Cornflakes
Branflakes
Special K
Bourneville Plain
And Milk Tray
Jelly, Ice cream
Banana split
Strange it all
Comes out as s**t
