I really do adore this dish,

Eating it often’s  a fervent wish.

Others will think it a filthy stew,

But when I eat it contentment accrues.

It has to be pastry,

It can’t be a pud,
‘Cause pastry is gorgeous,

But suet’s no good!
My wife hates it but made it somehow,

And adorned the top with a pastry cow¡
