The Empty Boat

Lean, tender and succulent

Expertly carved roast beef

Traditional Yorkshire pudding

Classic and well risen

Crisp, golden roasted potatoes

Soft and smooth on the inside

With fine green beans and carrots

Cooked to al dente precision


Just one more ingredient

Will bring this meal to perfection

And here it comes round the table

Impatiently I sip my wine

A rich and mellow Merlot

Till finally I reach to find

The last person finished the gravy
