The awful cook makes feetloaf;
And for dessert, a layer snake.
The terrible servants serve it;
Each course out of order and late.
We all sit down
And choke it down,
Then summon the incompetent doctor.
He pronounces us well
Though we itch and swell,
Then departs via helicopter.
The horrible host says goodnight by post
Three weeks later by standard form...
We're invited to dinner again next winter,
Alfresco in the howling storm.
