What’s Cooking

What’s Cooking

la Ra Rum go the prancing, dancing,

Flames of the stove,


Amused by this scenario, is the meat

Being cooked above.


The groin softens to the warmth of the fire,

With the cabbage and potato.


It forms an empire.

The unveiling of the platter,


Reveals, fit for a king, matter.

Copied from television this recipe


Is a treat, When near and dear ones,

Altogether do meet.
