The Cinema

The Cinema 

What is it with cinema munchers? 
Too greedy to wait for lunch as 
They chomp their way through a selection, 
Of popcorn and other confection. 

Popcorn is consumed by the bucket, 
As noisily crunching, they tuck it 
Away quickly, as though they are starving, 
Never thinking of sharing, or halving. 

Washed down with a tubful of drink, 
Sufficient a cruiser, to sink. 
Can they really not go for an hour, 
With only the plot to devour?

Just Eat

Just Eat

 In his wishes, Vinny's missus
 Lets him play out, catching fishes. 
Not for him the cluck it, pluck it, 
Finger lickin' bargain bucket. 
While he's on the River Ouse 
His missus rings Deliveroo's. 
Checks out Chinese for her daughter 
Orders more than what she oughtta. 

Fish and chips, tortilla teasers, 
Salad dips and spicy pizzas. 
Vinny's mini's home for supper 
Annie's plans he tries to scupper. 
Not for him the angler's boasting 
All he wants is cheesy toasties. 
Wherein she turns, and out she swishes 
And Vin, he learns, to do the dishes. 

Supersize Me

Supersize me

A carnivorous restaurant founder
Invented the meat seven pounder
With mayonnaise spread
Twixt two loaves of bread
Small wonder his belly got rounder.

Nijer for the goldfinch
Peanuts for the tits
Fat-balls for the starlings
I love 'em all to bits.

Coconuts are popular
They make an all round feed
Robins are the fussy ones
They prefer mixed seed.

I look out of my window
And watch them eat their food
The wild birds in the garden
Never fail to lift my mood.

Nijer, a seed food particularly popular with goldfinches

crackers for my tea
with blue stilton chalk
it was certainly different.

Funny Habits

Funny Habits
In Burnley they pour gravy
On their cheese and onion pie
I only have one question
Why, oh why, oh why?

nourishing, necessary
bought, cooked, eaten
cafe, pub, bar, restaurant
laughing, smiling, serving
frivolous, cheering

The worm

The worm
Sam ate a worm
Which made him squirm
But caught no germ
I can confirm
So, just short term.

...He won't do it again though.

"Here waiter," I said
"I'll give you a tip.
Take your thumb out of my soup."
