I was cooking a wonderful buffet,
For all of my very best friends,
Meat, fish, veggie, all gourmet,
And following all of the latest trends.
I was deeply and totally absorbed in my work,
But I felt I was being scrutinised,
I was alone, so felt like a bit of a jerk,
Then looked up and to my utter surprise,
I had an audience of hens, dog and cat,
All keen to sample my wares,
I silently promised each of them that
The leftovers might answer their prayers!
