Let’s Eat !

Frankly, my friends, I like to eat
And so I’m glad to see
So many of you here to show
That you agree with me

We’ve come to the right place. It’s rich
In people who have tried
Their level best to blend and bake
And braise and brew with pride

To nourish and rejoice you. Some
Have come from far away.
Some are your neighbours. All would like
You to enjoy to-day

By sampling their soups, biscuits, cheese,
Curries and sweets galore –
And then exploring everything
Else that is in our store !
