This poem was written in response to this challenge set by Esther Chilton.
If you want to take part, see the link below:
The challenge was to write something about your favourite food.
Of all the foodstuffs I like most,
I’ve got to say, it’s beans on toast.
I could eat them for my dinner,
I would happily have a munch,
And though you may call me Sinner
I’d have them for my lunch,
And breakfast too, I’m not so proud,
They’re cheap as chips, so lick my lips,
I’m prepared to shout out loud.
It’s beans on toast that I love most
They help me dissipate the crowd,
With an unfortunate gaseous cloud.
There is one thing more,
That I adore,
And I could not forsake,
So, therefore, let me implore
Bring me some Tea and Cake.
