George BernardBloodyShaw

Rookie (One day at the beginning of my life / England is my country)

'Varied Menu'


Chicken and rice.

Fish and rice.

Rice and chicken.

Rice and fish.

Varied menu - 'ish!

Nice jungle place.
There's plenty of space.
Fresh clean air
But that dietary pair,
Fish or chicken
.....Not again!

So more trekking with a frown
Back to Georgetown.....

    Yes, I expect Pauline does a great bacon and egg breakfast, as you know. That's if she is out of bed by that time. Breakfast is bed could be even nicer! ! ! A bit of smoked haddock could appeal.
    Loved the poem George. Fancy a burger now?

    Ask Pauline for a good old fashioned bacon and eggs.
    None of this rice nonsense...One meal a day and the best is a breakfast time.
