After a certain Parisian menu
Now what should we plump for today?
Maybe salad of crudenesses? What?
The duck in his light grease, you say?
Well that sounds pretty good, so why not?
The grilled paving-stone might be nice
With a bit of young broccoli growth,
Or perhaps you would rather a slice
Of this bread of the goat? Okay, both!
How greedy we tourists must seem!
Do you think we’d be wise to eschew
The island in Englishman's cream
To leave room for an ox-coast for two?
