A Buffet To Remember

It was a buffet to remember
With a lovely Hawaiian theme
Food so fresh and flavorful
It was truly a food critic's dream

Shrimp so sweet and tasty
Dipping sauce perfectly mixed
The platters were so beautiful
With everything that was fixed

A pig cooked to perfection
We couldn't wait to eat
So much food to put on our plate
Hard to carry it to our seat

The perfect way to celebrate
Harold's 100th birthday
Grabbed our plate and filled it up
It was just like a holiday!

Topic(s) of this poem: food, celebration

    The last line gives the required punch. I appreciate your simple language. Our poets are yet to know that poetry can also mean such a simple, straight and well framed stanzas.
