Isn't it good to know......

The potatoes are cooked
and parsnips done
bread sauce is bubbling nicely
the neatly trimmed sprouts are
all of one size
and will only be boiled very lightly
The carrots are cut into
matchstick size
with an engineer's precision
the starters prepared at
the crack of dawn
a chef de cuisine with vision
Tropical fruits with a
dash of liqueur
then one more dash for good luck
arranged exactly like
she saw in the
Delia Smith cookery book
She stands in the kitchen
looks at the clock
and judges the best time to serve
then opens the oven
just for a peep
and finds she's forgotten the bird
