Eulogy in the Style of Scaramouche

Eulogy in the Style of Scaramouche

Salute the long-awaited!
Run banners up the mast!
Pour out libations to the gods,
We gotta caf' at last!

Two sorts of soup and sandwiches,
And Macaroni Italienne
Haricot chops and fresh scones,
And, special, Curried Chicken.

Honour be to those who ran
The Little Theatre stand-in,
They, now their object is achieved.
Their thankless job can hand in.

Salute to Kris* the Royal cook,
In culinary splendour,
And now the Official Opening is
The next on our agenda.

Fred Spit.

* Kris Levenbach, ex-cook of the Royal Oak Hotel.
