Food For Thought - Poem by Esra Sloblock

I 'ad a burger t'other day
One that's done the fancy way
On telly don't they look reet good
With all t'stuff on 'em like they should

Yon lad said 'D'you want cheese? '
I nodded
'Right that's three pounds please' (! ! ! ! ! ! ! !)
Meat (?) , cheese, salad, soggy bread
'It's nowt like those on t'box' I said

I got to thinking what to do
'Bout a fast food shop that's new
One that caters for owd bids
Not nouveau riche and little kids

I won't let prices take a hike
They'll be reet low in 'Tripe-U-Like'
It's gradely grub, the real thing
Every time in 'Cowheel King'

Good Lanky fayre, a decent cut
Tha'll not go wrong in 'Elder Hut'
We aim to please, tha'll feel reet grand
You're welcome at 'Black Pudding Land'

Why no-one's done it I don't know
It surely must be the way to go
Not curry, pizza, GARLIC BREAD?
Get proper grub down thi instead!

    Ok, I'm a veggie but I still take your point. Great poem, and I love that? after the word meat! My bugbear are the packets of crips with flavours like Mature Cammenbert and Red Onion - THEY'RE JUST BLOODY CHEESE AND ONION CRISPS! ! !
