Little English cups, clay mugs, shiny plates;
Only heavy china,
Every one steaming.
Earth colours on pastry delights;
Sweet tooth cravings satisfied;
Finger foods with crumbly surfaces,
Baked, fried and greasy snacks;
Delicacies from the Mediterranean coast-
Delicacies from everywhere, really.
Deep reds, black blacks and a splash of yellow;
Of cutlery, crockery and men,
Loud orders over the steaming chef-
Some animals are indeed more equal than others!
